February Fund Raiser

The Ortonville Library will be having a fun fund raiser on Saturday, February 2, 2008. The fund raiser will start at 10:00 a.m. and go until 1:00 p.m. We will be working with distributors of Tupperware, Home Interiors and Tastefully Simple to provide you an opportunity to purchase items for yourself and at the same time, raise money for the library. Come by the library and purchase some great items and support the library.

Adult Winter Reading Program

The Adult Winter Reading Program is underway for 2008. The program will run for 13 weeks, ending on April 5, 2008. The theme this year is "A Reading Winterland". All you need to do is come into the library and sign up for the program. You need to set yourself a goal as to how many books you will read during these 13 weeks. If you reach your goal, you will receive one of our 2008 coffee mugs with the theme printed on them. We also have weekly drawings. When you finish reading a book, return it to the library, and sign up for the drawing that week. The local businesses have been very generous again with donating prizes. The program is open to the first 75 people to sign up. Happy Reading in 2008!
