Service Project

Emily Coltrin, our CVLA Member at Large for Public Libraries and our Service Project coordinator, has put together a great service project for this year that will coordinate with our May business meeting. 

Throughout the month of May, we will be collecting donated items for hygiene kits and then we will be assembling those items at a Hygiene Kit Packing Party on May 24th at 6:30 pm. This project will support 

The Little Lambs Foundation, a local non-profit in the Valley, that provides comfort kits to children who are transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter, or who have been hospitalized.

Here are the details:

How can you participate?
  • Put a box our at your library for community members and/or library staff to donate new hygiene kit items 'til May 24th.
  • Designate a member of your library team to deliver the donated items to a CVLA Exec Member or bring them to our May 24th event.
  • Attend the May 24th event and help assemble hygiene kits
What can you collect? (all new and unused items)
  • body wash; shampoo; conditioner; toothpaste; toothbrushes; soap; lotion; bubble bath; washcloths; hair brushes & combs; dental floss; deodorant; gallon ziplock bags
If you have any questions, contact Emily Coltrin at

Let's start collecting and we hope to see you on May 24th!

Free Books for Your CVLA Library!

Posted on behalf of the Friends of the Logan Library
The Friends of the Logan Library is holding a book sale today Thursday March 22 through Saturday March 24th at the Logan Library.  We would like to offer any books that are still available at the end of the sale free to local libraries.  Stop by the sale Saturday afternoon between 2:00 and close of sale at 5:00 and tell the cashier you are with a CVLA library to get books for your library at no charge!

The 183 volume Something About the Author is one of our book sale items that we are dealing with it in a different way.  Any library that would like this great series let Anne Hedrich of the Friends of Logan Library know of your interest by email at by the very end of the day (so 11:59 p.m.) Tuesday, March 27th.  At the CVLA meeting on March 28th (at 4:30 at Mount Logan Middle School in Logan!) we will draw a winner of all interested libraries from a hat.  We will also announce the winner over this list.  The winner doesn’t need to be present at the meeting.  You can also ask Anne if you have any questions about the process.

Karen Clark, Director of Logan Library, is willing to answer any questions about Something About the Author.  The winning library will need to come to the Logan Library to get the 183 volumes.


Stop by between 2 and 5 on Saturday March 24th at the Logan Library to get free books for your library!

Let Anne know of your interest in Something About the Author by end of day Tuesday March 27th.

Direct any questions about Something About the Author to Karen Clark
