This past year, the Louisville Rotary Club provided a generous donation to the Winston County
Library with an intended use toward literacy. With their contribution, the library purchased
literacy materials for public use. “We are grateful to be able to offer these resources to the
public,” said librarian Beth Edwards. “Rotary’s mission is literacy, and we are proud to partner
with them in helping to promote this for Winston County citizens.”
Do you need help with reading or writing, or do you know someone who does? You are
encouraged to take advantage of these free resources. Reading hardships are often a hidden
struggle. If someone confides in you about their struggles or desire to improve reading skills,
take the time to listen and support them.
Please share information about the literacy-based resources available at the Winston County
Library and let them know they are not alone. This past year, a man in his 70s who could not
read is now reading at a fourth-grade level, thanks to this program at your local library.
Also, you can become a volunteer. You can support this program by offering your time, skills,
and expertise with as little as one to two hours a week. We would love to have you join us!
Please share this information with your family, social group, church, fellow employees, and
anyone else who can benefit from this service! Remember that literacy is one of the greatest
gifts, and the Winston County Library has the tools to help.

“The Winston County Library would not exist without our customers.” This is a quote from Librarian Beth Edwards. She and her staff are passionate about providing the best customer service to anyone who enters the library. “They are like family to us and we appreciate them so much.”This month, the library is celebrating Customer Appreciation Month and is offering all copies, faxes and computer printouts for half price. Also, each week in August free “happies” will be given out. So be sure and visit the Winston County Library during August and “Be Appreciated”! Recently this family received Smarties with a card saying “ You’re such a Smartie for using the Library and we’re Bursting with Appreciation!”
