The Friends of the Shady Cove Library are again sponsoring Brian’s Birthday Book-a book gift program-for the children of Shady Cove, Trail, and surrounding areas. From ages 2 through 5, children are eligible to receive a free book on their birthday. Parents will receive a folder with great information about sparking their child’s interest in reading.
The program was originally started by an anonymous donor and funded for the first year. It originated from an idea Pat Brooks and Pat Guild had. Brooks is still the contact for the Shady Cove Library and Guild, who now resides in Medford, works with the Medford Library. Both are very committed volunteers. Now all funds are raised by the Friends of the Shady Cove Library through book sales, a donation jar at the Library, and through various programs.
Parents may register their children at the Shady Cove Branch Library, 22477 Highway 62. Open hours are Tuesday, 12 noon-6 p.m.; Wednesday, 1-7 p.m.; and Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
For information about Shady Cove Branch Library events, the Friends, or other information call the library at 878-2270.
