New children’s books at library thanks to Friends’ fundraisers. Don’t miss Craft Supplies Sale and Book Sale July 23 and 24, 9 am to 2 pm

Posted on: July 6, 2010

Katie O’Connor is five years old and loves books.  She and her parents, Matt and Jenn O’Connor were visiting her grandparents, Murphy residents Mike and Marcia Smith, when they stopped by the Murphy Library.

Five-year-old Katie O’Connor reads one of the new books at the Murphy Library purchased with funds raised at the Friends of Murphy Library yard and book sale in May. Katie was visiting the library with her parents Matt and Jenn O’Connor during their recent vacation. More fundraisers are coming up.


The library has been buying new nonfiction books for its children’s section recently with funds raised at the May yard sale and book sale.  Katie found a new book about the color yellow full of everything yellow, from bananas to parakeets.


Librarian Jeff Murphy noted that he ordered new books from Crabtree Press and also from Amazon.  A young person (and even an adult) could spend a hot summer afternoon reading about France, China, the color blue, the Hudson River, and even….vampires!  Just ask the librarians where the new children’s books are.

More fundraising events are on the calendar.  The Craft Supplies Sale (for the Spelling Bee fund) and Book Sale take place at the library on July 23 and 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The annual auction is at Bob Grove Auctions on August 7.
