The library is pleased to announce that we will sponsor a 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, April 28, as part of the Artisan Fair. The registration form should be submitted by April 12. Registration forms can be dropped off at the library or mailed to Helen Matthes Library, Get Bookin’ Family 5K Run and Walk, 100 E. Market Avenue, Effingham, IL 62401.
Proceeds from the run/walk will benefit the construction of the new library.
Special Family Rate available as well!
Sign up the whole family for one special rate for the Get Bookin’ 5K Run/Walk, to be held Saturday, April 28 at 9:00. If your family signs up prior to April 12, you’ll get to register either 2 adults and up to 3 children or 1 adult and up to 4 children for the rate of $60 (one t-shirt/family).
