A letter sent to the Burley Public Library Foundation:
We had so much fun on today’s parade entry. The library staff did funny little skits and played silly. These were the characters of Thing 1, Thing 2, and the clown, of course. Olga & Brenda slapped high 5’s with about a million children and got a lot of smiles and cheers. Cari created the vision of our simple little entry and her husband welded and cleaned their ATV and trailer to make it shine.
This was a wonderful event for all of us. People cheered and clapped, reminding us all of the importance of their library in our community. Parents and grandparents made special efforts to point out to their little ones that the characters from Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Wizard of Oz, Moana, and my own Curious George were passing by. For me, this was exciting and humbling all at the same moment. It’s an honor to be trusted by our incredible community members. We played Jerry’s music clips that had anything to do with books or the library. All of our staff members participated to some degree creating this simple little entry. Just a fun, fun, fun day.
Thank you, BPL Foundation for making this day such a delight!!!!
Perhaps you didn’t know that the Burley Public Library Foundation (BPLF) is a participating Smith’s Community Rewards Organization. This means that every time you shop at Smith’s using your points/rewards card or alternate ID (typically phone number) that Smith’s will make a donation to the BPLF. This does not effect the savings or rewards YOU earn on your purchases!
Years ago Smith’s asked customers to fill out a paper form in their store, indicating which organization you would like to contribute to in your local community. They have now moved the process exclusively online. It still involves filling out a form, but this time it is on their website, rather than on paper.
In order to have Smith’s start giving on your behalf to the Burley Public Library Foundation, you will need to create a digital account with them at their website. Here is the link explains how to quickly and easily create a digital account, and then how to choose the organization you wish to have Smith’s donate to on your behalf: https://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/topic/community-rewards-5
Our Non-Profit Organization or NPO number with Smith’s is: 25869
You will need to load that number in at the end of the process to indicate which organization you are choosing to support.
Thanks for supporting the Burley Public Library Foundation!
