MORRISON – The fundraising efforts of the recent Friends of Odell Public Library were far exceeded.
The goal was to raise $2,650 to benefit the library in the purchase of new books, and the final total was $5,494.53.
The monies will be divided between young adult books, juvenile books, classic movie CDs for kids, and large print books.
There will be a new timely, monthly column featuring various aspects of the library. The first column will appear the first part of December, written by Jessica Wroble, a reading specialist teacher in Milledgeville and member of the library board. She will review several of her favorites and others that are found on library shelves for children.
Virtual storytime is 7 p.m. every Wednesday night.
This program is perfect for preschoolers, but is enjoyed by toddlers and early elementary students also. Storytimes will be viewable on Odell’s Facebook page for one week following the live recording.
