The Hoopa Kim Yerton Memorial Library hosted their 16th Annual Chalk it up for Books on Saturday, June 3.

Each year, the library lends its sidewalk to community artists who are commissioned by sponsors who purchase space on the sidewalk. The library raised $910 this year. The money will be used to purchase items that are not included in their annual budget; books, craft supplies and more.

The annual fundraiser makes it possible for the library to continue offering enriching activities.
