Summer Reading Program continues…

Thanks to an exuberant and active Kick-off party, generously supported by the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library, Larry Brady, and Murph’s Appliance, we ushered in the 2016 summer season with nearly 200 attendees! To view some of the highlights, visit the library’s Youtube channel and look up the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library.

The Friends of the Vermillion Public Library organization does so much to support the Summer Reading Program through their Edie’s Book Shop Sales. We’d like to send out an extra huge thank you to all of you who drop by these monthly sales to search for your fabulous book treasure. Every dollar you spent goes back into library programming! Additionally, June’s sale was matched by a generous grant from the Modern Woodmen of America – everyone who shopped on the June 3rd & 4th sale doubled their impact. THANK YOU Modern Woodmen!
