The Pulaski County Library District is so fortunate! The mayors in all three of our library communities recognize the importance of our Pulaski County Libraries. This week, Mayors Smith (Crocker), Haun (Richland), and Hardman (Waynesville) each took the time to visit our libraries and sign a proclamation in honor of National Library Week. Our mayors maintain schedules packed full with jobs, family responsibilities, as well as overseeing our fine cities. We are grateful for the work our mayors do, and thankful for their support of our libraries!
Libraries across Texas and Florida are among those devastated by recent hurricanes. Consider paying any overdue library fines between October 1st-14th, as the Pulaski County Library District will donate these overdues (and additional specified donations) to the Texas and Florida Library Assocations to help rebuild affected libraries and collections.
The Robots Are Coming!
Do you have a child of any age who’d like to get some hands on experience with robots? That’s right, robots! Come on out to your library to meet ROI, robot mascot for the Robotics Outreach Initiative.
The Kaleidoscope Discovery Center in Rolla, in partnership with AmeriCorps Vista and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, is working towards a goal of introducing robotics to at least 1,000 kids this summer. The team, along with ROI and some other great gadgets, will visit the Waynesville and Crocker Libraries this week.
See them on Thursday, July 13th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Crocker Library and again on Friday, July 14th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Waynesville Library. It’s a pretty flexible program, so you’re welcome to come and stay for the whole time, or just drop in as you have a chance.
Again, programs are:
Crocker Library – 7/13 – 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Waynesville Library – 7/14 – 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
