USED BOOK SALE AUGUST 21-24
The Friends of the Kasson Library will host a used book sale August 21-24 at the library.  Come for great bargains in gently used books, DVDs and puzzles.  All funds raised return to benefit the library.


TEXTILE RECYCLING RETURNS AUGUST 21 

Kasson Library raises funds for special programs by recycling old clothes and fabrics.  We can accept old clothes or household textiles, even if they are too worn to sell at a garage sale or give to a thrift store.  We can use:  clothes with holes, tears or stains, or used household items like sheets, towels and blankets.  Sorry, but we cannot accept purses, leather, pillows, or anything down-filled.  Just bag and bring clean items to Kasson Library anytime Tuesday, August 21.  Questions?  Please call 634-7615.  Many thanks!


SUPER READERS THIS SUMMER!
Our Summer Reading Programs have concluded, but we are still celebrating the great reading that happened.  Our children’s program logged 8,929 reading hours in two months!  


SUMMER READING PROGRAM SERVICE PROJECT
Children and adults in the Summer Reading Program made pet beds for homeless animals as a service project, all from donated fabric.  A large collection of dog/cat food was also taken.  On August 1, 85 pet beds and a whole trunk-load of pet food was delivered to Paws & Claws animal shelter.  They were very grateful for these donations.  Thanks to everyone for your part in this!


ENSURING YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY

Kasson Public Library welcomes all children and cares about their safety.  Our policy states that all children under the age of 10 must be accompanied (defined as “within sight”) in the library.  Thank you for providing this measure of care.
