Moore-Leland Library will be celebrating the end of Summer Reading Club with a visit from some of the Farm School's Animals. Children, teens and adults have been reading to help Project Heifer supply animals to needy families around the world. The Friends of the Orange Public Libraries will donate 25 cents for each book read through August 25, 2012. On that day the Farm School will bring several farm animals to the library at 10:30 in the morning. The public is invited to come see and maybe feed or pet some of the animals. The amount of the donation to Project Heifer: the goal is 480 books read for a total of $120 which will provide a sheep or goat to a family. Light refreshments will be served.
There will also be a drawing to see which summer reader under the age of 18 will receive 2 free tickets to the Big E. These tickets were generously donated by the Big E and provided to the library by the Western Massachusetts Library Advocates. Volunteers from the Western Massachusetts Library Advocates group distributed passes to the Big E to libraries in 77 communities from all over the state to use as prizes for Summer Reading.
