Come and Harvest a Pumpkin. We have all of our magazine and newspaper subscription titles on a pumpkin. Come in, harvest a pumpkin and donate that magazine to the library. Due to budget cuts, we do not have funds to renew our newspapers and magazines. Help the library out by Harvesting a Pumpkin. To date, we have received in cash and magazine donations $730. We still have $625 worth of subscriptions that need to be "harvested".
Please support the library and use the above link www.GoodSearch.com to do all of your searches and your shopping. If you do, one cent for every search will be donated to the Friends of the Ortonville Public Library Foundation and for shopping 3% is added. This can really add up in a year. So try it. It is powered by Yahoo so it should be familiar to all.
The Saturday children's reading program will be held on December 1, 15th and 29th. On December 15th, Santa will be making an appearance to the children. This program is open to all children ages 3 through kindergarten.
