Food For Thought
LOCAL RESTAURANTS PARTNERED WITH THE LIBRARY
In a unique and generous partnership, area restaurants assisted the library in an effort to raise funds for a new accessible front entrance. On designated Thursdays, between September 12th and November 7th, each restaurant hosted a "Food for Thought" event, donating a portion of its profits after tips and taxes to the library.
Amy Hanley, director of MPL, explained the need for new, automatic doors: "Disabled individuals find it difficult to get up our current ramp, then hold the heavy door and re-maneuver into the lobby and open the second door. Self-opening doors would make life so much easier. Of course, new doors would also help mothers with strollers and persons returning armloads of books."
"The Friends of the Library thank all those restaurants participating in the Food for Thought fundraiser. We greatly appreciate their generosity. As always, our success in library initiatives depends upon community involvement," commented Pam Walukas, president of the MPL Friends group.
The Friends of MPL invited the community to support each restaurant, partake of the varied menus offered, and assist both the library's campaign for new doors and the success of area businesses.
Preschool Story Hour
Every Friday morning thru late May of 2014, your Meyersdale Library offers Story Hour for your preschool aged children between 10:00 and 11:00 AM, excluding holidays or posted cancellations.
It is a great time to introduce your children to our library and for them to have some interaction with other children from the area that are likely to become their future school mates.
