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.

*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. Thank you!
