We are at the beginning stages of preparing for our biggest fundraiser of the year, which will be held on April 2, 2016! There are many ways we need your help. If you or a family member received any gifts that you will not use for Christmas, why not donate them to the Tricky Tray?  As long as it is new, not used and in its original package, we'll be happy to accept them.  Please mark your donation for the Tricky Tray with your family's name and estimated value.

We are asking families to donate.  Why not split the cost with another family?  Please bring items to the school office, remember to include your name and estimated value (not what you paid for it, the original cost of the item) — this is so we may give you credit, and categorize the basket appropriately.

Don't forget to ask other family members if they can donate items/services.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., all love to help the cause.  Maybe you deal with certain businesses/companies — ask them if they would like to donate, we can provie a copy of our solicitation letter for their tax purposes. 

In order for this fundraiser to be a success, we need full participation from our school families.  Please contact us if you have any questions or if you can help in any way (donation, soliciting, set-up, etc.)

Thank you,

The Wanaque Borough Library Bookmark Contest is open to students in the Haskell and Wanaque School systems in grades 4-8.  One entry per student.  The entry must be completed on this entry blank using the theme "Ready, Set, Read." 

Before you draw, think about where you like to read.  Do you find a comfortable chair? Do you sit under your favorite tree? Do you read to your cat or dog? Do you read fast to get to the end? Are more like the turtle who takes it slow and easy? Do you like to stir the pot, finding the good sections? What makes you ready to read?

Entries will be distributed by the teachers, but extra forms are also available at the library.
The winning bookmark will be the official bookmark of Wanaque Public Library for 2016 and the artist will win a $50 gift card.  A second prize os offered to the runner-up.

Designs must be returned to the Wanaque Public Library by Friday, March 11, 2016.
