First Day Family Fun Festival 2014

Staff members from the Mississippi Valley Library District once again represented the Collinsville Memorial Library Center and Fairmont City Library Center at Collinsville's Sixth Annual "First Day Family Fun Festival", which is held at the beginning of every school year at the Gateway Center. 

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 the community. 

At the library's booth, staff members encouraged people to sign-up for library cards, promoted the library district's upcoming programs, raffled off prizes and let children (and a few adults!) take a spin on the Wheel of Prizes. Over 475 people spun the wheel/won a prize and 329 people entered our raffle drawings!

(Yes, that's a #BookabellaSelfie in the bottom right hand corner...)
