SPRING BOOK SALE DATES SCHEDULED

The White County Friends of the Library are teaming up for the annual Spring Book Sale.  Donations have been rolling in and we have many boxes of books for the book sale.

The Book Sale will be held at the Sparta First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, located on North Church Street in Sparta.  Directional signs will be posted.  Hours for the sale are a follows:

THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 9 am - 6 pm
FRIDAY, MARCH 31 8, am - 5 pm
SATURDAY, APRIL 1 8, am - Noon  
      
 As always, volunteers are needed to help work the sale.  Please contact Cathy Farley at (931)836-3613 to volunteer.  Workers are always welcome, and are especially needed during the setup and tear down phases.

All monies raised go directly to the Friends of the White County Public Library.  The Friends then use the money to add to the Library's book collection and assist with funding for other Library needs.

Book donations can be dropped off at the Library up to the sale dates.  We accept any books, hard cover or paperback.  If you are unable to deliver the books you wish to donate to the Library, please call and we will try to work out a pick up schedule.  And do remember, all donations are tax-deductible.

See all of you at the Book Sale!

Artsy Teens:  Back Pack Art

Join our Teen Librarian Victoria on Saturday, March 18 from 3:00 - 4:00 PM to design your very own backpack using coloring pens!  Backpacks will be provided for free, but our supplies are limited so it would be a good idea to arrive early, or bring your own in case of a large crowd.

For more information, email Victoria at teens@wtclibrary.org or call her at 836-3613

Library Computers Updated

The Library is excited to announce that it has recently installed 9 new computers throughout out facility thanks to a grant from the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA). It was administered through the Tennessee State Library & Archives and the Falling Water River Regional Library using federal, state, and county funds.
The grant has allowed the Library to update its computer lab, as well as several staff and public computers throughout its facility.
If you haven't visited out computer lab in a while, now is a great time to do so!  It is fully equipped to help you on with job applications, homework, and daily computer tasks.  We are incredibly grateful to all our partners who helped make this upgrade possible.
