Approximately 40 people attended the libraries picnic on September 13 at Happy Hollow Park. Great food and camaraderie was had by all!

Some played corn hole and ladder ball, while others played white elephant bingo and filled out the annual library’s crossword puzzle.

On September 12, Purdue Libraries hosted a second grade class from Vinton Elementary (Lafayette, IN) for our United Way Kick-Off event. The kids had a great time and received gift bags with books, t-shirts, and goodies.

We are still collecting new and gently used books until November 15 for Read to Succeed. If you have any books you would like to donate, please make sure someone on the committee gets them. Committee members are: Mary Sego-Chair, Sandy Galloway-Junior Chair, Dan Rotello, Angie Ewing, Teresa Balser, and Ashley Hutchcraft.

Also, from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, Potbelly Sandwich Shop has happily offered to have a fundraiser with 25% of sales going to United Way. The Libraries will get credit for the proceeds from the evening. Please support the cause if you are able. We will also accept donated books at this event.
