September 2016: Outreach Newsletter

  1. 1. Summer reading may be nearing a close but that doesn’t mean the deliveries have to stop! You may have noticed the white "scorecards” we have placed in your delivery bags. We have seen many of these returned and hopefully you remembered to write your name or a review on them so we can enter you for a prize. Once we finish deliveries for the month of August, and pick up the last of cards, we will put all of those names into a drawing for prizes– which will be distributed in the month of September. We would also like to take this time to thank our sponsors again (see below) for supporting our program and giving us an opportunity to give prizes to wonderful patrons like you. As always, if you ever think of anything that you would like us to add to your delivery bag, whether it be a book, music, audiobook, etc., please give us a call at 614-259-5034. If you contact us after hours, just be sure to leave a message and we will take care of your request in a timely manner.

The Outreach department is known for their deliveries but we offer so much more. Between book clubs and programs, story times and technology help and even playing games, our little office gets it done! Here’s a list of what we do. *Julie and Marie are also NOTARIES and will be glad to come to your home to notarize items for you. Please call us if you need this service. 614-259-5034. Did you know that when we started our newsletter, “The Outreach”, our front page article every issue was featuring one of our wonderful Outreach patrons? We had such great experiences, talking with these individuals, hearing about their lives and sharing their stories with you, our readers. The fact is, no matter how ordinary or unexciting our lives appear to us, everyone is unique and has special memories to share that uplift and inspire us all. We would love to resume our “Patron of the Month” article! If you are interested, please contact Outreach and we will schedule an interview. I can assure you it will be a fun experience and only those comments you wish to share will show up in the newsletter. Call 614- 259-5034 if you want to participate.
