For the love of the li­brary

The Covington News - - Opinion -

New­ton Coun­tians are blessed to have a li­brary as vi­tal and mod­ern as ours is.

Dur­ing th­ese times of lay­offs and bud­get cuts, the li­brary is for­tu­nate to have a strong group of vol­un­teers.

The Friends of the New­ton County Li­brary are spon­sor­ing their an­nual gift tree lo­cated just in­side the lobby of the li­brary.

The tree is dec­o­rated by col­or­ful pa­per or­na­ments, each with a book or a video to pur­chase for the li­brary on them.

If you can re­mem­ber a time when you fell in love with a book that you bor­rowed from a lo­cal li­brary, then you might want to go and pluck an or­na­ment off of the or­na­ment tree and make a do­na­tion so folks can still go to the li­brary and fall in love again and again.
