It Takes a Village...

...and a number of generous local businesses to run our busy summer reading program each year!

As I have written letters and emails and have spoken with owners and managers of businesses in the Bellevue and Metro area, I have been impressed by people's willingness to invest in our City's youth.  Year after year I approach restaurants, theaters, stores and businesses that provide entertainment for children and families, and every year I am reminded just how excited businesses are to support our reading program!

Here is a list of businesses who have contributed (so far!) by giving us coupons, passes, tickets and other reading incentives, as well as those who have provided funds for the staff to purchase additional materials needed for the program:

Bellevue City Pools
The Bookworm
Bounce U
Dave & Buster's
Domino's Pizza
Fat Brain Toys
Fontenelle Nature Association
Godfather's Pizza
Omaha Children's Museum
Outback Steakhouse
Papio Fun Park
Pizza Hut
River City Rodeo
The Rose Theater
Sam & Louie's
Skate City
Taco John's
That Pottery Place
Village Inn

I hope you can patronize some of these great establishments - and let them know how much you appreciate their willingness to support the library's summer reading program.  My husband may not know it yet, but he'll be taking me out to a nice dinner at Outback Steakhouse in the near future!!
