Cove Elementary School Time Capsule Excavation

Approximately 25 to 28 years ago, a time capsule was buried by the students and staff of Cove Elementary School. On October 10, 2009, the capsule will be excavated and brought to the Activity Room of the Mary H. Weir Public Library where a program will be held beginning at 11:00 a.m. Former teachers from that era have be contacted and invited to attend. Students who attended Cove School between 1980 and 1983 are also asked to come and be a part of this event.

Fall Story Hour Begins Soon

Registration for our Fall session of Story Hour will begin Monday, September 28, 2009. Children ages 3 to 5 are welcome to attend. Parents may register their child for one of three sessions, Tuesday at 1:00, Tuesday at 6:00, or Wednesday at 1:00. The program will begin the second full week of October and conclude the second week of December, with a one week break the week of Thanksgiving. Story Hour is free to those who have a Mary H. Weir Library Card. We do request that both the parent and child have a card. Story Hour is designed to promote reading and develop language skills, fine motor skills, and social skills in a fun filled environment. In addition to stories, programs may include music, fingerplays, crafts, and short films.

Recycling Pays!

As some of you know, the library has been recycling used printer cartridges recently. The company we are working with, the Funding Factory, deals mainly with schools and non-profit agencies. We recently sent in a shipment and with the credit we received from it will be able to purchase a set of finger puppets to use with Story Hour. There are several other items we would like to acquire for our Children's Programs and our Literacy Program so keep those cartridges coming! Of course we can only redeem cartridges that the company can refill and resell, so check the list on the Funding Factory's website, or call the library to see if your cartridges are eligible. Also, please keep as much of the original packaging as possible to protect the electronics. The company does not pay for damaged cartridges.

The Literacy Council also has been recycling paper. They have a trailer in the parking lot behind the library. When it fills, a volunteer takes it to Valley Converting. The proceeds of the paper recycling go to support the programs of the literacy council. They ask that you do not package your paper in plastic bags as these have to be removed before recycling. Please use cardboard boxes or paper bags instead. Funds raised through paper recycling have helped pay for travel expenses to trainings, literacy materials, and bus tickets for students and volunteers.

Thanks to all who have participated in these programs! Your help is greatly appreciated.
