The Friends of the Hiawatha Library are a group of people who meet monthly to brainstorm about how to raise funds for the the library's excellent children and adult programming. Many of the programs can be attended free of charge because of the group's fundraising efforts.
Fundraisers include tickets to the Play Station for $5 each. (That's a savings of $3 for each child!) The tickets can be used at any time.
Hy-Vee coupon booklets can also be purchased for $10 each. The book contains valuable, money-saving coupons. You can pay for the price of the booklet in your first shopping trip!
The tickets and coupon books are available at the library, 150 W. Willman Street.
Books, CDs, and DVDs can be purchased at the book sale room inside the library. Items are sold for a fraction of what they cost on Amazon, and all proceeds go to the friends of the Library to help offset the cost of the programming at the library.
A Book Sale event, hosted by the "Friends," is scheduled for Aug. 22-24 in the Glenn Schminke Room of the Hiawatha Library.
