Sponsor a giant chess piece for the new chess board in the garden at Laura's Library.  
Don't miss out on this unique opportunity!  Only 9 pieces remain for sponsorship at the $500 - $750 level.   Donor's names will be permanently displayed on a plaque near the chessboard.  These pieces will be snapped up quickly, so make your donation now.  For more information stop by either branch and talk with a library staff person or contact the Friends at friends@westbanklibrary.com.
Have you see the outdoor chessboard? If not be sure to step outside the back door of the Laura Bush Library and see our lovely Chess Garden, open to anyone who enjoys playing chess. On Sunday, June 1st at 2 PM, the Friends will host a dedication for the outdoor chess garden at Laura's Library.  Join us as we thank those who made the garden a possibility with their generous donations of time and financial support!
