The Page Public Library is holding its first fundraiser to help support this year’s upcoming summer reading programs.
“The Good, The Bad and The Guilty” is a murder mystery dinner that will be held Feb. 28 at 6:30pm at Ken’s Old West.
Dinner theater tickets are $40 each and worth every penny. You can purchase your tickets from the Page Public Library, Ken’s Old West and the Page Community Center.
The evening will feature a delicious Mexican buffet dinner prepared by the fabulous cooks at Ken’s. Come and join in the fun, as you travel back to the old west for a “Who dun it?” comedy mystery that just may end with a hanging.
But the most awesome part is that $30 of each ticket goes directly to your wonderful library.
Due to budget cuts, the library faces the possibility of having to cut back and or place limits on its summer reading programs. These life-enriching programs engage both the young and the old.
The quality of the summer reading programs and their high numbers of participants, is what gave the Page Public Library its “Five Star” rating and ranking in a second-place tie for the “Best Small Town Library” in the country.
Those are very high honors of recognition. It would be heartbreaking to have to lower program standards, reduce registration or worse yet charge a fee. Cut backs like these always hurt the ones who need the programs the most.
If you can’t make it to the fundraiser, you can support your library by stopping in to see what’s going on. Every month there is a calendar filled with free educational, informative and fun activities for all ages.
So come to your Page Pubic Library and literally check things out!
