Library News from Linda

Working with Home Town Pride has made me aware of how fragile small towns in Iowa really are. To survive and thrive small towns need available housing, amenities, and high- speed internet. It is believed that if those three things are in place, business will come. Two of the three are difficult. Every available house in Randolph that is livable now is occupied. High-speed internet is close but not close enough to Randolph. Some amenities are easier than others to develop. Several people in town have put in a great deal of time and energy making certain the park is one of the best in the area. The new ball diamond will allow games to be played in our town bringing in people to see how great we are. Along with the hard work we need to thank all the people who donated to the park and ball diamond. Both the park and ball diamond bring me to one other thing I feel is important to the survival of small towns, the young people.

Right now, Randolph has more children living in town than there has been in years. These kids are our future. If we can make good memories for them while they are growing up they will stay in this area. Some of my fondest memories were growing up in Randolph. I want the same for these kids. Our theme for the reading program this year is “Build a Better World”. To give you a small insight into the children I see every day when I asked for volunteers to take down flags at the cemetery after Memorial Day I did not hear why I heard sure. When the ball diamond needed the shells picked up and the picnic tables needed washed they once again where ready to help. These are the kids we have in Randolph. These are the ones that will help Randolph survive. If you want to see the future of Randolph come to one of our reading programs on Thursday nights.

I would love to have you stop by the library and see if I can find you a good book or movie. Just want to visit that’s okay too. New books and movies will be added this week. Titles will be announced next month. Library Board of Trustees meets the second Wednesday of every month at 5:30, I encourage you to come to a meeting and see what’s happening or scheduled to happen in the future.

Still collecting shoes for the shoe fundraiser until July 15th. Bring them to the library or call and I will pick them up.

Fun Day News:

All types of shoes, including cleats are accepted! Drop off at the Randolph library! Collecting now, the time has been extended through July 15! If you need shoes picked up call Lindsey at 402-981-8940.

Ballfield news:

Many have been working very hard getting the ballfield ready to go and it is almost finished! There are games being played at the park now. Gary has worked very hard getting donations to get this done but we have fallen short and are asking for help! If there is any way possible that anyone would be able to donate any amount toward the ballfield it would be greatly appreciated. Your name would go on the marquee below the scoreboard. Thank you in advance for your support in making this happen for the children!

Town News:
