July 24 Events

We have two great events happening July 24th that we wanted everyone to know about. Whether you are a current CVLA Member or librarian working in Cache Valley or just a library-fan, we invite you to come and join in the festivities with us.

First, we will be participating in the Logan Pioneer Day Parade. Shawn Bliss, the Cache/Rich Bookmobile librarian will be driving his bookmobile in the parade and JaDene Denniston will be offering her convertible. There will be opportunities to ride or walk, as you need. We will meet at 10:30 along 100 W in Logan and make signs that represent our libraries or what we love most about libraries. Going along with the Summer Reading Program theme, we invite all participants to show up in superhero costumes or shirts, but it isn't required. We will have sign making equipment ready and water bottles for the participants. The parade will begin at noon and end at 1:30 at Willow Park. Please be sure to wear suncreen and bring a hat, if you need it. The map of the parade route is available here: http://www.loganutah.org/PR/Dept/images/Pioneer_Day/2015PioneerDayParadeInformation.pdf.

Second, we will be celebrating with Mendon City as they break ground for their brand new library/city office building. The groundbreaking starts at 7 pm at the Mendon Town Square. CVLA will have a brief meeting and some treats beforehand - at 6 pm at the pavilion on the square. The meeting agenda and minutes needing approval are attached for your reading pleasure. Please note that there will be showings of the "Wellsville Kid" at 5:30 and 7:45 that day, as well as the next day at 6, 7, and 8 o'clock. The Wellsville Kid is a very entertaining movie created by the residents of Mendon in 1972. (You can read about it in the Standard Examiner here: http://www.standard.net/Movies-TV/2015/07/16/The-Wellsville-Kid-rides-again-in-Mendon.html) The movie has been remastered and will be shown as a fundraiser for library. Tickets are $5/adults and $3/kids ages 12 and under or $7/adults and $5/kids at the door. Call 435-764-6610 or email wellsvillekid@gmail.com to pre-order.

We hope to see you there!
