On Monday April 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM the Friends of the Parkersburg Library will be hosting an open house for the community to see the newly renovated ceiling and restroom project. Enjoy a light supper and enter your name for some great prizes. These include: A Keurig Coffee Maker, A Book by Shell Rock author, Linda McCann entitled Prohibition in Eastern Iowa, A geranium, the color of your choice, and A Friends of the Library Membership.
Friends are also beginning their geranium sale with a variety of colors to choose from. The price for the 4" Potted Plants are $8.00 each or 3/$21.00.
At 7:00, directly following the Open House, Friends of the Library will be having their Annual Meeting. This, once a year event, helps generate ideas for promoting the Kothe Memorial Library.
