Consolidated Electric Co. has awarded the Wornstaff Library with a People Fund grant to help us offset some of the costs we will have as we migrate to the COOL (Consortium of Ohio Libraries). The Wornstaff library will be moving into the COOL (Central Of Ohio Libraries) in March.   As a condition of the grant money award, Consolidated Electric challenged us to find additional sources of funding.  

A REALLY BIG THANK YOU
to 229 Storage, Rotary Products and Rusk Brothers. These businesses have donated $1150 and with an additional $800 donated previously will be used to   help us purchase some additional equipment and supplies. With this help it will make it easier to meet the Spring deadline and possibly make the transition to the new system a lot smoother. 

Thank you to Rachel Bussard for building the amazing new display shelf  at the end of  the adult non-fiction into the new room. 

Thank you also to Karsten Bumpus for his artwork..  His drawings are on the dry erase board for programs this month.

We really appreciate the kind volunteers who donate their time and talents to the library each month.

We hope you have noticed all the changes that are occurring at Wornstaff library!

A direct result of our rearranging and reorganizing campaign is a number of bigger items that are available to a lucky patron.  We will accept donations for some pictures and other stuff that we no longer have a use for.

An interesting website is: www.holidayinsights.com  It’s a great place to discover all those things we will be honoring/observing these days, weeks and months. In addition to Thanksgiving and Veteran’s Day, did you know that November is also National Sleep Comfort Month?


Keep us in mind for Holiday Gift Giving.

We could use materials for ongoing projects:
Pool Noodles             
Small clear containers  
Paint &/or painting  supplies
Digital camera          

                                      
Christmas in Ashley is scheduled for December 1 from 6:00– 9:00.  This is the  third year in a row for this very popular event.  This year the Wornstaff Library will be one of the stops.  

We have been overwhelmed with book donations as well as a considerable amount of weeding lately.
So now is your opportunity to explore our book sale.  A box full for a dollar.  You can’t beat that price! 

We hope you noticed all the changes that are happening in the library.  We are trying to help make this library a more comfortable place to study and learn.    

In our efforts to reorganize, we will have some non-book items available (such as art work) for a donation.
