Evening Program Tours the Bank

At the final program of Our Community Reads, Joe Dahinden, president of Valley Bank, took us on an after-hours tour of the bank, showing the vault, the computers, and explaining how the bank keeps money safe. After touring the bank we returned to the library to hear Joe read the book Elephants can paint, too! We learned that elephants eat three hundred pounds of food a day and they spray water out of their trunks. Even so, they are a lot like people. They like to eat cookies and hang out with their friends. They even like to paint pictures!

Winefest 2009

On Friday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. the Library Foundation will host the 6th annual Winefest Fundraiser. Once again it will be at the River Rock Community Center. The theme this year is "Wines of the World" and promises a wide variety of delicious wine tasting options. We'll have live music by Dos Mayos, door prizes, live auction, silent auction and more. It is the perfect set up for a very exciting evening.

The foundation board members, along with over a dozen volunteers, have been working tirelessly to make this event a success. Come by and visit our booth at Fall Festival to find out more and to purchase your ticket. After August 1, tickets will also be available at the Library and Belgrade Liquor.
