4-Alflafta (la.) Upper feet Moine. thursday, March 21, ;: - - -liniii nil ii Set Open House For Library At LuVerne 1968 LuVERNE - You, the people of LoVerne and surrounding community have a new library. In the summer of 1966 when our Mayor, James Mallory, visited Washington, D. C., he investigated the possibility of LuVerne acquiring a new library with Federal Aid. What he learned was very encouraging and he came back to our town with a determination to do something about it He visited and talked with various organizations, clubs, the ministers of the three churches, and other townspeople about the project. In November of that year the LuVerne Community Library Building Committee was organized. It was composed of representatives from the local organizations who sponsored the project. Many meetings were held and plans to raise money for this project were discussed. It was decided that a group should go to Mason City and talk with the directors of the Kinney-Lindstrom Foundation to learn if they would be willing to help this library project. The committee returned with good reports. With a gift of $10,000 from the Kinney- Lindstrom Foundation, federal aid of $21,200 and the need of $8,800 more from the people of LuVerne, the Library Building Committee went to work. The committee was divided into groups and the town and country was canvased for donations. The committee was very grateful for the good response to their canvas. Donations, large and small were gratefully accepted. In one short month, we had re ached our goal of $8,800. Mrs. Max Patterson was asked to be treasurer of this committee and she has done an outstanding job handling this money. After the donations had been turned in to her, she deposited it in the bank on interest to await the final date of completion. Thus the LuVerne citizens' money was making money while waiting for completion of the building. The Griffith Co. of Ft. Dodge prepared the blue prints. The bids were opened in July, just minutes before Mr. Mallory.left for a European tour of several months. The bids were much higher than the maximum of $40,000 and it was a dejected building committee and library board that left the town hall on that hot day in July. But they were a determined group. A few days later a meeting was called and the building committee appointed Mrs. Lyle Shelton, president of the library board, to act as chairman of the building committee. Our plans were revised and with the help and advice of Mrs. Ann McKinley of Mason City, our field consultant, the co-operation and combined efforts of the building committee and the library board we soon had our ground-breaking ceremonies. The construction of the library was on its way under the able supervision of Sande Construction, Humboldt. The Library Building Committee wishes to thank Mrs. Shelton for her time and great effort spent in this project. Also a thank you to Mrs. McKinley, the Griffith Co. of Ft. Dodge, Sande Construction and the people of LuVerne who helped to make our library a reality. Open house will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 2 to 5p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend. - o - SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS The 19th annual LuVerne High School Athletic Banquet will be held March 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the lunchroom. Dewey Halford, coach at Morningside College, will be the guest speaker. The LuVerne sixth grade with their teacher, Mrs. Schade, visited the new town library Wednesday afternoon. We thought the library was well arranged and very attractive and indeed feel grateful that we are. fortunate enough to have such a library in our community. We want to thank the two librarians, Mrs. Hinzand Mrs. Hardcopf, for their time and interest in us and hope to visit the library often. After each checked out at least one book to read, an old newspaper in the back room fascinated the students. - o The Finance Committee of the Methodist Church met in the home of Mrs. Violet Goetsch, chairman, March 13 to plan the Mother ajid Daughter Banquet April 18.
