Hartshorne Friends of the Library hosts a book fair to raise money for Summer Reading Program

(Continued)

McALESTER —

In addition to the Summer Reading Program, the Hartshorne FOL assists with other projects as well. “We can buy things for the library that’s not in their budget,” Barlow said. For example, the FOL bought the flag pole outside the library, she said. As Painter and Anthony were checking out, Marsha Rouse scanned rows of books, looking for those special finds.

“I like historical fiction,” said Rouse, who lives just outside Hartshorne. “And anything about the Old South, I love it.” Even though historical fiction is many times built around fictional characters, Rouse said it often also includes enough history that she learns a lot. She discovered several she wanted to add to her collection as she scanned the rows of books offered for sale.

Books either come from donations or from discards culled from library shelves. Members of the Friends of the Library hope they continue to have a steady turnout for the duration of the book sale, so the Summer Reading Program and other library projects will benefit. “It’s a good cause,” Kurilko said.
