LIBRARY NEWS


The LCLD Summer Reading Program starts on June 4th -- wahoo! You can register online at www.latahlibrary.org or in person at any LCLD branch, such as the Troy Community Library. Summer Reading runs through July and will include three reading challenges, fun weekly activities, and prizes! Did you know that Summer Reading is for all ages?!


Kids, if you need a fun and engaging program to occupy your grown-ups this summer, bring them to the library and sign them up for Summer Reading. The library’s monthly STEAM Take-away Activity will be on break for the summer. However, with funds provided by the Idaho Commission for Libraries, I was able to incorporate some exciting STEM projects into this year’s Summer Reading Program. Stay tuned for more details.


The Friends of the Troy Community Library paid for our library’s Summer Reading prizes. Thank you Friends & Happy Summer Reading! - Michelle Sturdy, Troy Community Library Branch Manager

 

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE

The Troy Lions would like to thank the patrons who contributed during our Blood Drive in May. 29 units of blood were donated. Since each unit can be used in 3 ways, this helped save 87 lives.


We would also like to thank the LDS missionaries for helping at the sign in table. The Red Cross will hold another Blood Drive on July 29th at the Troy Lions Hall and again on October 28th. Please note these dates on your calendar.

 
 

Q & A With Mayor Corr


What is your favorite thing about living in Troy?


When I first came to Troy, I fell in love with it. Just the

pure beauty of it was like a little slice of heaven, and to

live here is a dream come true.


What is the one thing you wish people knew about Troy?


I wish people knew its true history from the time it began to the present. Everything that makes it Troy and what makes the people who they are. The true locals of Troy are amazing folks, and many have some great stories.


What motivated you to get involved with the City government?


The people. I wanted to be a voice for the folks that live here. I really had no agenda when I first became a city council member other than wanting to help the folks out using skills that I had acquired as a manager for several years of my life.


What changes would you like to see/implement within the City?


Mostly I would love to see more things for children and the community. Such as a community center and more venues for kids to help keep them out of mischief.
