Summer Fest Parade fun!

Filed under: Uncategorized — oregonareacommbook @ 4:29 pm

At the Summer Fest parade in Oregon on Sunday June 27th, our sponsor the Oregon Public Library was a big hit with their display of skill inlibrary cart drills. Voted most humorous entry in 2009’s Summer Fest Parade, they were again welcomed with screams of “We love our library.”  On the sidelines, volunteers for the Oregon Area Community Book Project passed out bookmarks publicizing our July 17th History Show and Tell event.

Way to go, Librarians!
