Wesson Public Library winners
Mary Hopson August Clark
Mary Hopson and August Clark were September Wesson Public Library books giveaway winners. Hopson received the adult category prize book -- James Patterson by James Patterson and Clark received Bug in a Rug by Russell Puter and David Semple, the children/youth category prize. Friends of the Library (FOL) funds the prize books awarded in drawings every month. The goal is bringing people to the library to learn how it can meet their needs. In September, FOL started another library promotion program – “Fall for Books” in which the library will track book check-outs by patrons during September, October and early November, tally the traffic and award the top library user on November 15. The details of the new program have changed since they were announced last month. Instead of selecting two winners of $25 gifts certificates for menu items at Dump’s Barbeque, one winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to use at any business in the Wesson area. FOL is a support organization that conducts fundraisers for the library and assists in its programming through advice and counsel, volunteers, and donations.
