“Fairy Tales” is the name of the beautiful quilt Fran Woods, a Maple Valley Library Guild member, was kind enough to donate to the guild so that we could raffle it off. Proceeds from the raffle will augment the programming for children, teens and adult patrons of the Maple Valley Library.
On behalf of the Library Guild, I wish to thank everyone who participated in the raffle. Many community members purchased raffle tickets, trying to win Fran’s handiwork. The Maple Valley Library staff sold many tickets, as did guild members. The Maple Valley Days organization gave us a great place for a booth to display the quilt and sell tickets at during Maple Valley Days. The city of Maple Valley and the Parks Department furnished space, a canopy, tables and chairs so that we could display the quilt and sell additional tickets on July 4. The mayor of Maple Valley, Laure Iddings, was kind enough to oversee the drawing of the winning ticket by a young audience member, Katrina.
Congratulations to Jan Wright of Maple Valley, winner of the quilt. Jan wasn’t at the drawing held on July 4, but received the quilt on July 26 at the library, where she met Fran.
Again, thank you and kudos to all who participated in this event. The Library Guild would be unable to provide the wonderful programming found at our library if it were not for the support of the community. Also, a very special thank you to the Maple Valley Reporter for including Library Guild updates in nearly every issue of the paper.
