Do you love Dr. Seuss, or know someone who does? Have you always wanted to learn how to paint? Would you love to be able to give someone a Pandora bracelet for Christmas, all for only two dollars?

The Friends of the Library are holding a raffle to help us raise money for shelving, particularly in our Young Adult area to give it room to grow with our readers. Together, they have collected some really fantastic prizes.

There are beautiful literary themed quilts, a natural products prize package, a $400 gift card and gift basket to Chino’s/Sunshine Greenhouse (that’s a lot of gardening and/or gelato), an amazing handcrafted stained glass lamp, an intricate woodcarving, a chance to go behind closed doors at Prairie Oils and Vinegars and get a private tasting session for you and a group of friends, Pandora jewelry, a Paint Night package for two, a baby girl gift basket, and a Reiki session all up for grabs.

Pictured below are just a few of our prizes, come to the library to see them all!Fundraiser

We’ll be selling tickets until the draw, which will be at the Library on December 19th at 11 a.m. That’s just in time to snag some really amazing Christmas presents (or hey, keep the bracelet for yourself, we won’t judge.) Come check it out, all tickets are selling for just $2.


About the Authors

Hi - my name is Carolyn Graham and I am the Head Librarian and I love my job! One of the best parts of my job is that I am the first one to see all the beautiful new books as they arrive. I have always loved to read and my favorite way to relax is with a good book. I strongly believe that having good reading skills is an integral part of all learning. Being able to share good books and authors that I have enjoyed is great fun. Feel free to come and ask for suggestions.

Hi - I’m Aubrey Walker, Assistant Librarian at the Jake Epp Library. I’m a librarian and coffee guzzler by day, a reader and tea sipper by night. Reading and writing (and talking endlessly about both) are passions of mine, so I’m rather lucky to have a job where those things are relevant and important. I’m also the voice behind our Facebook page, and I love connecting with people about books both online and off. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
