Children’s Book Sale: April
Please consider purchasing a Children’s Book as a donation to the Butler Library. Books for purchase will be displayed on the table by the Circulation Desk with papers inside which explains the donation process including the amount to be paid for the book. As always we thank our patrons who have helped us in the past increase our collection. (Our funding has decreased in the last two years so this fundraiser helps us purchase new books for our young readers.)
