It was just shy of a decade ago that the Larsen-Sant Library officially was unveiled to the community.
The cold, snowy day of Feb. 9 brought out a crowd of well-wishers that also included several longtime library board members who had worked tirelessly for some years to make the library a reality. The library was formally dedicated that day. It officially opened for business on Monday, Feb. 11, 2002.
In honor of the 10-year anniversary, activities are planned for each Saturday during February, said library Director Cloteele Dahle. Activities will begin at 11 a.m. and include drawings for prizes. Patrons can register for the drawings each time they visit the library during the month.
“We Love Books” will be the theme for Saturday, Feb. 4. The first 100 people in the library will receive a free book. In addition, in a quest to encourage reading, particularly during the anniversary month, patrons are encouraged to bring their favorite book and have their picture taken for a poster. “How many books can you read this month?” Dahle asks.
Other themes are: Feb. 11, “We Love to Read!” and Feb. 14 is National Read to Your Child Day. The Feb. 18 theme is “We Love Our library,” while Feb. 25 the theme will be, “We Love Our Patrons.”
An open house will be held Feb. 29, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Winners of the drawings will be announced.
“Celebrate the library as we ‘leap’ into the future,” Dahle said.
Also during the month, “Let’s Talk About It” will continue with 7 p.m. programs on Feb. 1, Feb. 15 and Feb. 29. The “Great Reads for Girls” program on Feb. 16 will feature the book, “Diamond Willow” by Helen Frost.
Articles about the library’s events and history will be published in The Citizen and on The Citizen’s webpage throughout the month. For more information, call 852-0175.
