Tupper ‘gives and forgives’ during month of August

The Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge is in both a forgiving mood and a giving mood.

During the month of August, “Tupper” will forgive library fees on books and other materials that are returned in the same condition in which they left the library.

Tupper is also in the giving mood in the way of cash prizes to be awarded to the winners in the Read-to Me Video Contest that ends at 9 a.m. August 24.

The Read-to-Me Video Contest is open to adults who enjoy classic fairytales and enjoy reading the tales to children even more.

Theresa Trawick, director of the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library, said only two steps must be taken to enter the Read-to-Me Video Contest.

“The first step is to record a video of the reader reading a classic fairytale to one child or several,” she said. “The video must be from one to three minutes and include the name or names of the children who are enjoying the story and their relationships to the reader.”

The second step in the contest is to post the video on the contest page and invite friends and family members to ‘like’ the video and join the event.

The three videos with the most “likes” registered by 9 a.m. on August 9 will receive a $10 Amazon e-gift card.

The submitted videos will be featured on Tupper’s website, Trawick said.

“The Read-to Me Video Contest will be challenging for our readers and fun and learning for the readers’ cast of characters and for all those who view the videos.”

Tupper is continuing to stay busy with curbside pickup. To have books delivered to the library parking lot, place an order at 735-2145 and call the library when waiting in the parking lot.

Members of the Growing Words Hybrid Program will host a discussion group at the library at 6 p.m. on Monday, August 3. Members and guests may join the discussion at a social distance at the library or stay home and join via video chat.

The Silent Book Club members will discuss what they have been reading at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4 at the library and at a social distance or at home via video chat.

The Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library continues to offer programs and activities at the library and on-line for all ages.
