January News from the LME Library

Lots of great things are happening at the Lillie M. Evans Library!  At the beginning of the year, we launched our updated website at  These changes make it easier for you to locate resources and easier for us to keep the site current.  We hope you like the changes and we look forward to adding more resources to our site!

If you are a fan of The Biggest Loser reality show, now is your chance to compete in our local version. The LME Biggest Loser (season 3!) program runs from January 11-February 29th and can help you to shed pounds and get fit. Weekly weigh-ins started Jan 11 and will be at the library on Wednesdays between 10a-8p. Sign-up at the library and pick up a player packet.  More information can be found at: 

When the Lillie M. Evans Library kicked off Food 4 Fines its Foods-4-Fines program at the Princeville Holiday Homecoming Celebration, we had no idea what to expect. From November 28th thru December 23rd, the library accepted nonperishable foods items in lieu of fines. For each item donated, the library forgave $1 of fines. 55 library patrons donated articles ranging from paper towels to canned food.  These donations brought in 340 pounds to the local food pantry and erased over $200 in fines.  There were also some without fines who wished to donate, and we gladly accepted those donations.  Thank you Princeville community for your generosity!
