Mississippi Valley's "First Day"

Last week, staff members from the Mississippi Valley Library District - which encompasses both the Collinsville Memorial Library Center and the Fairmont City Library Center - represented the library district at Collinsville's fifth annual First Day Family Festival. According to The City Scoop (the official newsletter of the City of Collinsville), "The purpose of the First Day event is to strengthen the relationship between the Unit 10 School District and the City government, all while showcasing everything the City, School District, civic groups, and businesses have to offer residents of Collinsville." At the library's booth, Leslee, Jess and Jed encouraged people to sign-up for library cards, promoted the library district's upcoming programs, and handed out some sweet treats!
