Treasure the Past, Celebrate the Present, Discover the Future (Summer Reading 2019)

Posted by GreigMemLib on July 19, 2019 at 8:25 PM
Thank you to everyone who helped make our Summer Reading Program for 2019 a big success, and to all those young readers who participated and met their weekly reading goals. Themed around our new children and young adult books and existing classic titles from the library, we encouraged young readers to frequent the library with a kickoff celebration at ROWVA Elementary and at the Library, a wide selection of new books, Story Time Under the Tree, a Make & Take Craft Night held on Tuesdays during the program, and a pool party celebration. Between 8 and 15 young readers participated in the craft nights each week, and 21 participants signed up to keep track of their weekly reading goals. Our end of program drawing winners were Cooper Dennis and Aiden Frey, each winning a gift basket including Peoria Chiefs or Quad City River Bandit tickets. Meeting a weekly goal meant young readers could guess how many treasure chest chocolates were in the jar. (There were 151!) We had three equally close guesses, so they got to share the chocolates: Congratulations to Madelyn Adams, Ashley Lindsey, and Kenzie Rafferty. Please be sure to join us again next year for another fun-filled summer of reading...and until then, check back to see what other activities are coming up at the library. Above all, keep reading!

Halloween 2018

Posted by GreigMemLib on November 7, 2018 at 5:00 PM
Once again your Greig Library hosted Halloween for the local children. We had a great turnout with well over 100 attendees, 83 of which were children.
The kids got candy treats and were encouraged to pick out a free book to add to their goody bags. A good time was had by all and your Library Board and staff would like to thank all who stopped in and helped us have a good time. Another thank you to the Board and Friends members who volunteered their time and efforts to provide us with another happy holiday.
And a belated BOO! from your local chip monk.
