BIBLE SCHOOL OPENS Vacation Bible school began this week at Good Mope merit,' the. library was given to the town in 1929, becoming a tax supported public library, governed by a board of library trustees working with the librarian, Mrs. Schram. The library is now open two afternoons and an evening each week with a goal of additional hours in the future. Furnishing the tax supported library was made possible by generous contributions from numerous individuals and the following oranizations: Lions club, Titonka Federated club, Titonka Woman's club, V.F.W. Auxiliary and American Legion Auxiliary. A large number of voluntary workers helped in moving the books to the new location as well as marking and mending books, typing and cataloging. Interest evidenced by this flow of contributions and the willing volunteer work is a real credit to the community of Titonka. New housing of the library has been made possible by the purchase and remodeling of an existing building by an interested citizen, the town purchas ing the building, payment being made as rent. This project has served a two-fold purpose for the town and community. "' It has provided fine library facilities for a community of its size, thus promoting the cultural development of the community, and at the same time has given a face lifting to Main street.
