Soup Never Tasted This Good; Local Library Holds Brunch to Raise Money

Temperatures are warming up this week, but it's still cold enough that homemade soup is the perfect winter meal.  Some people were enjoying that very thing, during a fundraising event at the Lost Creek Community Building Sunday.

This is the first year the Southern Area Library has held the Taste of Soup event, which is meant to raise money for the library's utility bills.

Volunteers from Friends of the Library each made three gallons of soup of their choice.  Visitors could vote for which soup they found the tastiest with pennies.

Book were found at each table, and some local authors were on hand to sign them.

The library director said even though it's the smallest library in the state, it's the most active.

"One thing we were hoping to do, there's a lot of grants you can apply for and things you can get to help to buy books and children's programs, but there's nothing you can really do to pay for salaries or utilities," said Mary Stenger.

She added, "So, what we're doing with A Taste of Soup, is while the soup warms the patron's bellies, their donations are warming the library, because it's going to help pay for the utilities."

They raised over $1,000.
