Library Curbside Checkout Program to Begin at Hayhurst on Nov. 18th 2-4 PM

The Hayhurst Library is done being renovated – woohoo!! 

The Library Ladies (Ms. C and Ms. Jones) are working hard to get it up and running to start our curbside checkout program called, Let’s Get Reading! 

The Details

A quick overview of the program is below and the complete details are in this PDF, plus on the newly redesigned Hayhurst Library website.

WHO: You and the Library Ladies!
WHAT: A curbside checkout program to distribute Hayhurst Library books to students K-5.
WHEN: Every Wednesday from 2:00-4:00 starting November 18th.
WHERE: Hayhurst School’s front entrance in the drive-thru area. Please stay in your car until you reach the front of the line and have one person (wearing a mask!) get out and come to the front doors.
WHY: Because we all need stories, imaginative adventure, and facts in our lives more than ever!

HOW: Bags will be premade by the Library Ladies with 10 books and are a mix of genres. They are available for all K-5 students and come in three different colors (green, orange or yellow) so we can get just-right books for you. You may find some old favorites or a new discovery that you fall in love with! ***5th Grade ONLY will have the option to request up to 5 specific books using an online request form. The Library Ladies will do their best with what is currently available to fill their requests. The other 5 books will be a mix of genres and topics. Parent email addresses will be required in the form for approval and contact.***

Call for Volunteers – Hayhurst 2020 Auction Fundraiser

The biggest fundraiser each year for the Hayhurst Elementary community is our auction, which was postponed during the initial Stay at Home order. Our circus theme was a bit too on the nose… What a year.

Our school community still needs our support – so we are pulling together an event that will happen in December (probably, please stay tuned).

we could definitely use some help! Interested in spreading word, helping us get presents out the door, honoring our local businesses who have supported our auction? Get plugged in by emailing Christy Splitt.
