BUILD THE KASLO LIBRARY'S COLLECTION BY sponsoring a book, magazine subscription, audio book or DVD. Bring your ideas for our collection or check out our wish list. Each time an item is sponsored, library staff will add a "book" to the tower in the library entrance. Stop by the library at 413 4th Street to see how we're doing and to choose a title that you'd like to sponsor. Sponsors get first read of the item of their choice and a tax receipt for donations of over $20. Call 250-353-2942 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
