Back to School Reading: We have less than one week before school starts and kids are scrambling to catch up on their reading. Did you know that the library has a collection of required reading books free for students? Just ask about them at the front desk and get the materials you need.
The Blanco Library is pleased to announce that The Libri Foundation has donated 80 children’s books to our community. The Libri Foundation’s mission is to help rural libraries like ours to provide the best quality children’s collection to encourage and nurture a love for reading and learning. The Friends of the Blanco Library raised donations at their annual Dinner and a Movie in the spring that the Foundation matched 2-1. The collections of new books are showcased in our library, but join us August 29th at 6pm for a Special Collection Party and August 30th at 10:30 am for a special Libri Story Time!
The deadline for our Photo Contest is coming up fast! If you want a chance to win a FREE NOOK, email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as fill out one of our media release forms from our website. All submissions are due August 31st and please make sure the pictures can be at least 8.625" by 11.125" at a resolution of 240 dpi.
