Mayor Denny Doyle spoke Thursday, December 27th at the Beaverton Optimist Club Breakfast at the Peppermill Restaurant . At the conclusion of his talk, the Beaverton Optimist Club, along with Doug Hoy, President of the Aloha Community Library Association presented the Mayor a certificate of appreciation noting the fact that a book, pictured below, was donated in his honor to the Children’s Library at the Aloha Community Library .
Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet is the title of the donation. This is a wonderful children’s story of the puppeteer of Macy’s Parades. Thanks to this donation, you will find it soon in our collection!
The Optimist Club plans on assisting the Aloha Library with future book donations, as well as a donation of labor in moving library assets to a new storage facility. Video of the donation(starting at 47:00) is available via YouTube.com here.
President Doug Hoy will be giving a presentation at the next Optimist Club meeting (Thursday, January 3, 2013) providing them an update on progress.
<updated January 4, 2013> The Optimist Club of Beaverton donated the Young Adult Fiction book, Icefall, by Matthew Kirby yesterday at this week’s club meeting, just after President Doug Hoy’s presentation. ACLA appreciates this very much!
