September Events 
 
What's Going on at LME Library in September
As students head back to school, we encourage parents to visit the Lillie M. Evans Library and make sure their children and teens sign-up for the most important school supply of all - a library card.  Everyone who lives in the Princeville School District age 5 and over is eligible for a LME Library card.  Students can access free databases, checkout library materials, and attend programs that provide an added value to the educational experience. No wonder that 84-percent of American's agree that the public library is important to education. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, so when you register, be sure to enter the "I Got Mine!" drawing.  Each week, there will be an opportunity to win a Princeville Princes discount card.  The final drawing will be for a Casey's gift card.  If you already have a library card, you can enter the drawing by updating your contact information and getting your picture taken with your card.  This September, open the door to a world of possibilities for the student in your life and sign up for a library card today.

September also kicks off with a new LME Biggest Loser program- the fall 2012 edition.  The LME Biggest Loser runs from September 5 and can help you to shed pounds and get fit. Participants compete for prizes during the 8 week program which will be on display just inside our Walnut Street entrance. Weekly weigh-ins will be at the library on Wednesdays between 9a-8p. There are lots of opportunities to attend programs and workout session. Visit the library's website at http://lmelibrary.org for additional information.

Story times and a new toddler time are available for our younger members.  FALL Storytime for 3-5 year olds will begin on September 11 and will be a 5 week session on the following dates on Tuesdays, Sept 11, 18, 25, October 2, & 16 @ 9:30 or 10:30 AM (please note there will not be Storytime on October 9th).  You may sign up your child by phone, in person or online through the library's website. Be sure to note what session time you would prefer in the comments section. Space is limited and sessions fill up fast so please register ASAP.  In addition, there will be a new Storytime option, especially for children 18 months up to 36 months and an accompanying adult. This Storytime will include stories, songs and action rhymes but no crafts. Dates are Wednesdays, September 12, 19, 26, October 3 & 17 (no session on October 10).  The 5 week session runs from 10:30 - 10:50 AM.  No registration necessary! Drop-ins welcome!
 
In conjunction with the Princeville Heritage Museum, we are sponsoring a Hobo Quilts Program on Sunday, September 16th, 2012 at 3:30pm at the Princeville Heritage Museum.  Author, Debra Henninger will present the program.  Debi is the owner of 3 quilt shops in the area and has recently written a book, Hobo Quilts, based on quilts she designed using hobo signs.   Debi will discuss the history and lifestyle of hobos and present some of the quilts she made in preparation of her book.  Please note this program is at the Museum which is located at 325 N.

Walking Program UPDATE
Princeville Walks is OVER-so how did we do?  We did great!  As you may know, Princeville Walks was part of LME Library's summer reading activities.  Starting May 29th, participants recorded the steps or miles they walked, ran, or converted from activities.  Each participant kept a log for the 9 week program which ended July 27, and then reported the miles periodically to us.  Whenever new miles were turned in, we updated our board in the library to see how far Princeville Walks. 

Overall we had 21 participants sign-up for the program and 13 turned in miles or steps.  Our major goal was to reach Princeville, Hawaii and we met our goal-Princeville, HI is 4195.1 miles away and our Princeville Walks participants walked a total of 4462.4 miles!  Along the way, we visited the Future Birthplace of James T. Kirk in Riverside, IA (102 miles) and Dorothy's House and Land of Oz in Liberal, KS (656.9).  Next it was on to the Museum of Clean in Pocatello, ID (1172 miles) and Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas, NV (1406.2 miles).  When our walkers left the continental United States, they journeyed 2868.6 miles to Butte, Alaska.  Butte is known for its people powered Ferris wheel and for the landmark "sword in the pole." 

Thank you to everyone who participated in Princeville Walks-many people enjoyed this program, and we hope you did too!  If you were a participant, stop by the library anytime and pick up your certificate of completion.  For those of you looking for more fitness activities, the LME Biggest Loser Fall 2012 will be starting in September.  Visit the library's website at http://lmelibrary.org for additional information on this and other library programs.

NEW Walk Up Computer Stations
Thanks to the generous donations from the family & friends of Janet Hager, the Lillie M. Evans LIbrary now has two walk up computer stations in the library. These stations are perfect for searching the library's catalog, navigating the library's magazine articles and ebooks, and receiving some assistance from the LME Library staff. There is no sign-up necessary for these computers, but they are for quick searching and resource demonstration. Regular Internet users will continue to checkout computer passes and use one of the 7 sit down computers. The walk up stations are located by the circulation staff so if assistance is needed, the staff is available. 
 
Janet Hager contributed many hours to the library-first as a staff member and then as a volunteer-and we deeply appreciated the dedication and joy she brought with her. She passed away in February 2012, and we miss her greatly. Since Janet spent so much of her time at the library, it seems fitting for her to commemorated in this way. We have many fond memories of Janet and her commitment to the mission of the library. These gifts will continue to represent the service and enthusiasm Janet provided to the Lillie M. Evans Library District. 
Lillie M. Evans Library
