The John C. Hart Memorial Library is happy to announce that Ariana, an avid reader and patron of the library, won the Jelly Bean Contest recently held in the Children’s Room with a guess of 1568, only 37 jelly beans off of the actual number. Ariana got the jelly beans as the prize, but unfortunately has to keep the jar as a decoration for awhile, as she just got braces and jelly beans are not permitted.
The Jelly Bean Contest is one way the Hart Library is employing to boost awareness of the upcoming renovation of the Children’s Room. Contributions are coming in daily and have reached the one-third mark. Donations can be made to the Children’s Room Fund, The Hart Library, 1130 Main Street, Shrub Oak, NY 10588. Stop by to see the plans and samples going into the renovation.
