Annual QUILT Fundraiser

Quilt
Thanks to the talents and efforts of the Bookworm Quilters that meet weekly at the library, you have a chance to win this colorful quilt.  Stop by the library to purchase chaces that are $1 each or 6 for $5.  Money raised will be used to help keep the doors open while we are not tax supported.

New Items in Book Sale

We continue to add to the book sale as items are sold.  Lots of MILITARY BOOKS have been donated for the sale recently. Stop by the library to see a variety of Adult Fiction and Non-fiction in hardback or mass market paperback format.  There are also children and youth books  available.  All are at reasonable prices.  Come in and see for yourself.  Check back regularly to see new additions.

**********************************

The Wood Place Library is operated by The Elia Wood Foundation.  The board voted to provide FREE library cards to anyone residing in Moniteau County that wishes to use the library.  We encourage those who have never used the library to apply for a library card and begin exploring the collections for check-out, 14 public computers, free WiFi, e-Books, Copy/Faxing services,  and programs.  The Foundation is reaching out to residents to assist them in making an informed decision when considering a levy vote on November 7.

In the meantime, the Foundation has fundraised to assist with operating costs to Keep the Doors Open until pubic support is voted into existence and tax funds are received.  The goal is to be open part-time in 2017, and full time beginning January 2, 2018.  

Once a levy has been passed, the library will be eligible for MO State Library programs and grants.  These grants provide funding for the Summer Reading Program, Interlibrary Loan Courier Service, the Rural Electronic Assess for Libraries (REAL) program, and other beneficial programs. 

We are excited about the future of the library and appreciate your support and understanding during this time of uncertainity for the library.
