 CCLS Steak BBQ Cook-Off 

& Dog Walk

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Held at:  Van Buren Public Library

 

 

 

 

The Friends of the Crawford County Library System is sponsoring a Steak BBQ Cook-Off on Saturday, October 12, 2019, in the Van Buren Public Library parking lot.  This fundraising project is for the five libraries in Crawford County.  Our goal is to acquire a new van or SUV for library business. This vehicle also runs deliveries between the five libraries three times a week. 


Here is how you can help; we need grillers/cooks to participate in this fundraiser!  If you love to grill, and want to register, please contact your local library for the rules for the cook-off and to sign up.  The fee is $75 and will cover the two rib-eye steaks you will need for the competition. It is up to you to see who makes the best BBQ steak in town!  In order for this event to take place, we need the first 6 grillers or teams to pay their entry fees by September 13, 2019. The deadline for the other teams to pay is Friday, September 27, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.


We are also organizing a second event that same day! The Friends of the Crawford County Library System is hosting a Dog Walk!  More information for this event will be available after we have six participants for the Steak BBQ Cook-off. 


UPDATE: As of right now, we only need 5 grillers to guarantee this cook-off. We currently have 1 participant signed up and ready to grill! Thanks for your participation. 


If you cannot participate but would still like to make a donation, please contact your local library.  Please note, the Friends of the Crawford County Library System is a new group to help raise funds for the Crawford County Library System. We have applied for a 501(c)3 non-profit status, however, this first event and all donations for this event will not count as a tax write-off.

Hooray!  Mountainburg Library has a new sign!

 

 

 

 

Hooray! Mountainburg Library has a sign! We’re so grateful to those of you who donated or volunteered to help us raise money for this project, especially our wonderful Friends of the Library group. Thanks also to Jared Graham of Boulder Designs of NWA for making this beautiful sign for us! And to the city of Mountainburg for helping us dig the footing. We also remember Sue Yount today, since we built the sign in her memory for her many years of service to the Mountainburg Public Library. The dust is still settling on the sign and we have a little dirt to put back in place, but we’re so glad to be able to serve as we do here in Mountainburg, providing resources and library services for young and old alike. Now that you know where we are, stop by and see us!
