Celebration at Clutier Library set for June 26

Sunday, June 26, the Clutier Public Library will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the signing of the ordinance establishing the library by hosting an Open House. The ordinance was signed on July 1, 1991, by Mayor Dwight Cross and attested by City Clerk Evelyn Stejskal. Many people worked to get the library up and running and we want to honor them and the many others who worked to keep the library open and viable for the community over the years. The Open House will take place on Sunday, June 26, from 2 4pm at the library. We will have indoor and outdoor seating and will serve bars and beverages. We hope that people who have been a part of the library like the past members of the Board of Trustees, past city officials, the volunteers and donors, as well as the people who are presently helping to keep us going will come and see the library as it is now. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has never been to our library to see what Clutier has.

The Summer Reading Program will take place on the four Wednesdays in July. There will be a different activity each week and all school age children are welcome to come. This year the library received a $250.00 grant from the Shopko Foundation's Community Charitable Grant Program to help defray the costs of the Summer Program. This grant program was established to support charitable non-profit organizations through limited funding of local programs and events in the Shopko Communities. In Clutier these funds will be used for supplies and refreshments for the kids attending the Summer Reading Program.

July 6 at 1:00pm our activity will be to "Decorate the Driveway". We will be using liquid sidewalk chalk in spray bottles, and stencils, in addition to regular sidewalk chalk to decorate the driveway next door, and the sidewalk in front of the library. The sidewalk chalk is washable, but please send your kids in old clothes.

July 13 at 12:00pm (noon) Trevor Templeman from ECICOG's (East Central Iowa Council of Governments) Summer Library Reading program will be here to read "Diary of a Worm". The educational portion of the program will focus on how to create compost and how beneficial compost is in reducing waste and improving our soil. The kids will meet the worms through hands on activities.

July 20 at 1:00pm we will be tying two fleece blankets for the auction. They will already be cut and ready to tie.

July 27 at 1:00pm Jennifer Hulme will be leading outdoor activities. We will end with our annual pizza party.

Our last activity for the summer will be the annual auction. This takes place on Main Street at 4:00pm on August 6, the last day of the Bohemian Plum Festival. As always we will have a large variety of items. This year our quilt will commemorate our 25th anniversary. We are already receiving items for the auction, and they may continue to be brought in early. We will be sending postcards to previous donors to remind them that members of our Board of Trustees will be calling on them soon.
