Is it time to declutter? Do the shelves in your bookcase look like this? Overflowing with books that you’ve read and no place left to keep them?
I have the solution! Donate your gently read books to the Haltom City Public Library. Some books may be used to add to the library's shelves or replace existing torn or worn books; the rest will be donated to the book sale being sponsored by the Friends of the Haltom City Public Library on April 28-April 30, 2011. (If you have empty bookshelves, you won't want to miss this sale!)
Helpful hint from your library blog mistress: If you use your library card instead of your charge card, not only will your book shelves stay neat, you will save money and still be the best-read person in town.
And if you still have that prize-winning photo sitting on a shelf along with your books or knickknacks, you only have a few days to submit it to the 24th Annual Images of Haltom City Photo Contest. The contest deadline is March 29, 2011.
And if you still have that award-winning poem or short story cluttering up your mind, make time to get those words down on paper. The deadline for the Library’s 11th Annual Writing Contest is May 31, 2011.
Themes and rules are on the City’s website for both the photo contest and the writing contest.
