Today ground was broken for our new library! To all who attended, thank you, it was wonderful to see so many there, and so many children. There is work ahead of us, but for those who have waited a long time, this has been a huge milestone for our community. There are many people to thank for today. The Mayor and City Council, the Nampa Development Corporation, the Library Board, city staff, Library staff, the Gardner Company, ESI, Babcock Design Group, FFA, and many more.
We are now working to put the finishing touches on the interior design. This is a process that began some time ago, before I arrived here 3 years ago. We continue to look for ways to involve the community. We are hoping to have a construction camera operating soon so that you can watch the progress. You will find floor plans now, you'll be amazed, and then again when you step inside the finished library in just a year and a half!
The library needs teens (ages 13-17 to help us with our summer reading program, Beneath the Surface. Our teen volunteers help make this program a success for all ages each year.
Teen volunteers will be scheduled for 2-3 hour shifts to help register people for the programs, distribute stickers & prizes, and help with events throughout the summer, including the Kick-Off Carnival! The summer reading program runs during the months of June and July. Come on down and join in the fun! Please tell your friends who might be interested to apply as well.
All teen volunteers must be age 13 by June 1, 2013. It is mandatory for all teen volunteers to attend a 1/2 hour training session, and be prepared to sign up for their desired shifts at that time.
Training Sessions are scheduled for: Monday, May 13th — 5:30pm-6:30pm Monday, May 20th — 5:30pm-6:30pm Tuesday, May 21th — 5:30pm-6:30pm Saturday, May 25th — 9:30am-10:00am Saturday, May 25th — 10:30am-11:00am
