Happy Friday from the Great Bend Public Library. We would like to send out a thank you to the community for donating to the United Way Box of Love. We also would like to announce that the Crochet Club finished off their warmth for Winter Campaign last week and were able to donate over 45 packets of crocheted, knitted, and donated hats, scarves, and gloves to the Hungry Hearts Soup Kitchen. They are planning on several more charity programs and if you know of one please contact Elizabeth Dukelow at the Great Bend Public Library 620-792-2409.
The Children’s Department and the kids would like to thank Dr. Chad Allen Ohnmacht DDS. for his donation of 100 toothbrushes.
Everyone should know that Children’s Movies will be cancelled until Friday, Feb. 24, and Children’s Makerspace will be cancelled until Monday, Feb. 27.
The Crochet Club thanks Rose Leiker and Dinah Newman for their wonderful donations of yarn. The Club will continue to accept donations of yarn all year for their charity projects. A special thank you goes out to Yderlit Weber for all of the beautiful scarves and hats she has made for the Warmth for Winter Project. Thank You again to everyone who participated.
