September was National Library Card sign up month at the Sulphur Springs Public Library and 115 new patrons signed up for a library card.  Just think of all the benefits there are for those individuals!

Food For Fines was also promoted with each item of nonperishable food worth $1 in fines.  Over 200 items go to the Community Chest on Thursday.  We will be loading up at the library Thursday at 11:20 am and we welcome you to join us delivering the food items…I love that we can all help each other!

A new contest for September was Book In a Jar.  Many of our patrons found it very interesting and spent some time with the jar trying to figure out the book title.  Our winner Ricky Smith was the recipient of a bag of special selected newly released books. Second place winner, Rachael Hodges went home with a new release by Jennifer Weiner.

Watch for new announcements coming in October…you won’t want to miss what’s happening at the Sulphur Springs Public Library!
