Aloha Community Library Makes Gift-Giving Easy
The very-talented volunteer elves at the Aloha Community Library have been busily crafting gift items for sale at the annual Book-tique library fund-raiser. Book-tique items will be for sale in the library during normal operating hours from December 7-21.
For another unique gift idea, you can make a donation to the library in honor or in memory of a friend, relative, favorite teacher or child, and the library will send the honoree (or their family) a special holiday card acknowledging your gift. Your gift is fully tax deductible to the extent of the law. Gifts must be received by December 20 for delivery by December 25.
Honorarium gifts may be made with the gift form (Holiday Honorarium Gifts) at the library or by mail to:
Aloha Community Library
PO Box 6561
Aloha, OR 97007
Honorarium gifts may also be made through Paypal ; please email the completed gift form to Volunteer@alohalibrary.org
With the Book-tique and honorarium gifts, you can give more than a gift — you can give a library!
Aloha Library’s second annual ‘Book-tique’ sale is slated to open in the library on December 7th. The sale will run through December 21st, during library open hours.
The library will be selling handmade items crafted by library volunteers and some very nice ‘gently’ used books, at extremely reasonable prices. Last year’s ‘Book-tique’ was a big success.
Among the items being offered are gift baskets, crocheted hats, bags and scarves and beaded lanyards. Come and see all of the other things made by our ‘crafty’ volunteers to raise money for the Aloha Community library.
Check out our books and DVD’s and do your last minute holiday shopping at the same time!
Friends, there is so much I love about the Aloha Community Library Association!
This is an association seeking to share with and serve those in our community. The effectiveness of your library’s mission in the coming months depends on your generosity and dedication. Right now and through October 20, your generosity to step up and support the library with your monetary gifts will be matched through an anonymous gift of $10,000. This matching campaign will ensure the hiring of paid staff allowing the library to grow in the ways necessary to become part of the WCCLS. Please help us “Open this gift of $10,000”. As of today, we have raised roughly 1/2 have that amount and have passed the $5,000 mark.

We will be holding our Annual Membership meeting on Sunday, October 20, 2013 from 2:00-2:30pm. It will be held in the recently vacated Blockbuster Video which is in the same complex as our Aloha Community Library facility. It is adjacent to the Dairy Queen restaurant and abuts Farmington Rd. The address is 17555 SW Farmington Rd. To get the complete announcement, please download the file here.
Immediately following this, we will be having a community-wide open house in the same facility. This facility has been generously provided for our use for this one time event. In the near future, it will be torn down and replaced by a new business. This is a one-time opportunity!
Thanks to an anonymous donation, a musical group called Whistlin’ Ruffas will be performing that afternoon as well. We have some special speakers lined up to make some special announcements at 3pm, so if your time is limited, be sure and drop by at that time. We will have information about future library events, ability to register for library cards for new patrons and information on becoming a member of the Association.
If you haven’t checked out our newsletter, you can download it on the front page (see NEWSLETTER button on the right hand side below VOLUNTEER). It has been pulled together by an amazing group of volunteers (Christina Lawton, Jackie Ortega and Board Secretary Amy Grant). If you are a card holder in the library (and have provided us your email address or a registered Association member, you should also be receiving this as an email beginning this week. The newsletter team has setup an independent email address to get feedback or suggestions so be sure and use that to let us know what you think! It is listed at the bottom of the file!
October 2, 2013: The Aloha Community Library Association announced today that their hours of operation are expanding effective today to 37 hours per week from the previous schedule of only 29 hours week. This is a reflection of the expanding interest and community support of the library and its ability to sufficiently staff library hours. Currently, 2-3 trained volunteers are available for each hour of operation. The new hours are posted on the website home page and are included graphically below. We are adding additional hours to each day we have been open previously so that every day we are open from 10am to 8pm except Saturday when we close at 5pm. Storytime continues to be offered each Wednesday morning from 10:30-11:30am.

September 21, 2013. The Aloha Community Library Association has been amazingly blessed by the first year of our operations! In the last fiscal year, we raised almost $60,000. Our target for this fiscal year (July 2013-June 2014) is to raise $100,000. We have also been blessed by an amazing variety of talented, hardworking professionals who have donated their time to helping achieve our short term objectives and long term mission. As we grow our organization, we will be able to provide additional services to our community and build the infrastructure needed to become a member of the Washington County Cooperative Library Service (WCCLS). Looking ahead, continuing to perform well in the financial management area is essential for our success.

Parents, kids come to the Library, every Saturday in November and December, from 10 – 11 am to learn how to play Crazy Machines.
The Aloha Community Library IT Department will present a workshop on the computer game Crazy Machines. The game that teaches how to build machines using: steam engines, gears, pulleys, electric motors and electrical circuits. There are hundreds of experiments. Each one is a puzzle that requires placing the machine parts in just right location to make the completed machine accomplish the task. Aloha Library’s own “Mad Scientist” and IT Leader Gene Allison will be on hand to do a demonstration and be the coach for new participants in this wonderful computer program designed to instill curiosity and science learning in young people (as well as those who are young at heart!).
