Making Strides: Library Donation Station
On May 5 from 8 am to 8 pm our wonderful Winters Community Library will serve as a donation station and party central. Enjoy free treats, water, coffee and special puppet and storytelling by Jan Schubert. Jan is the author of the Sun Seed, one of the books you can win in the Literary Treasure Basket and the creator of Bee Happy Candles.
From 10am til noon Visual Story Telling with Jan Schubert will take place. This is geared for children ages 2 to 6. Jan tells stories with puppets and poetry and song. There will also be crafts and treats.
From 3:00 til 5:30 Tales with Tails will occur. This is where you’ll have an opportunity to read to your favorite 4 legged friends.
And then from 6:00 til 7:30 Cara Patten will be at the library doing Nature Drama. Children and adults of all ages should enjoy this. Christina Dias will do her wonderful story time for preschoolers. And then we’ll also have face painting and snacks. Fun for everyone. Don’t miss out!
Staff and volunteers will be on hand to help with donations and encourage community members to share their library love selfies and library support stories. Everyone is invited to contribute, to visit our Giving Edge profile page on that day, and help our campaign go viral.
If you’re interested in volunteering, or if you want more information, please call Linda Glick at 530-504-1511
Home Stretch: Berryessa Gap Donation Celebration
From 5 pm to 8 pm on May 5, donate and head down to the Berryessa Gap Tasting Room to keep the donation celebration and multiplication going.
No host wine, entertainment, and appetizers are on the menu along with volunteers ready with laptops, tablets, and phones to facilitate donations and social media sharing.
Thanks to our wonderful supporters at Berryessa Gap we will be able to watch the leaderboard, see a slide show of Winters Friends of the Library events and programs and take a look at the contents of the Treasure Basket.
Remember, in addition to supporting our library hours and programs, each $25 donation given within the 24 hours to the Winters Friends of the Library at the bigdayorgiving.org site will receive a “virtual raffle ticket.” At the end of the 24 hours, tickets will be tallied and assigned based on donations and one winner will be randomly selected from all the tickets. Read more about the treasures and the authors over at this post.
