Wells Fargo has donated a $1000 to the Friends of the Mooresville Public Library to cover the start up costs of book delivery bags and ancillary supplies for the library’s new home-bound program.

Justin R. Burton, Vice President and Business Relationship Manager for the bank said, “We are proud to support the Mooresville Public Library’s Homebound Book Delivery program. Thank you for all you do to promote literacy, education, technology, community and culture.”
The library’s Volunteer Coordinator, Kerrie Castle, coordinates the program, with assistance from Friends of the Library volunteers. Serena Sciarretta selects books and supervises the circulation aspect.
Book delivery will start with residents of the area health care facilities Mooresville Manor, Accordius Health, and Curlin Commons, with plans to expand to residential home-bound patrons soon. Volunteers will deliver and pick up
5-10 books per member monthly.
Library Director Marian Lytle said, “Mooresville Public Library is honored to work with the Friends of the Library and Wells Fargo to put Books on Wheels on the road. Reading materials will be delivered in the colorful sturdy bags provided by the Wells Fargo Grant. This is a perfect example of how volunteers and business come together to serve local citizens and support the Library’s vision of being ‘Your place to connect, discover and grow.’ “

Just read Guts by Raina Telgemeier. Highly recommend. Telgemeier is the author of several best sellers including Sisters, Smile, and Drama. Guts is based on her childhood with the storyline focusing on conquering your fears as a teenage child.
I picked up Ambush by James Patterson at the Library tonight.
