Come and run to help kick-start the Manhattan-Elwood Public Library District’s 2013 Summer Reading Program! Just to make it interesting, chances are you’ll get your shirt (and maybe more) splattered with a rainbow of colors. So wear something you don’t mind getting “artistically altered”, and a pair of sunglasses for good measure!
Where: Run or Walk the Wauponsee Glacial Trail, starting and ending at the Metra Train Station.
When: Saturday, June 1st, 2013.
Time: Registration is at 9:30 a.m. and the race starts at 10:00 a.m.
Admission is free but donations are certainly appreciated. (All donations will benefit the library’s Summer Reading Program).
Refreshments will be provided at the finish.
Please pre-register online at mpld.org. (Participants will need to check in on race day at 9:30 a.m.).
*Teen Volunteers are also needed to Spray Registrants with Colored Powder.
Call (815) 478-3987 to register or for more info.
Due to the overwhelming generosity of our library patrons, we have reached our goal of 20,000 plastic bags in record time. The T-REX Company, impressed by our progress, has promised us an additional bench if we manage to collect another 35,000 by October 1st and we are well on our way. Please continue to support our cause to allow us to provide a cozy place to read outside for both our children and adult patrons. We are floored by your kindness and want you to know that we truly appreciate all your help.
This month, in honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day, support the library’s project to reuse and recycle. From the materials of 20,000 plastic bags, Trex Co. can make our library a wonderful outdoor reading bench. Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, we are halfway toward our goal and we appreciate your continued help in our efforts. So bring in those bags!
