The group "First Kidz" in Newport are raising money for the Camden Ouachita County Public Library which burned in a fire earlier this summer on July 3.

The kids set up a lemonade stand at the Jackson County Public Library in Newport. After just two hours of selling lemonade the group raised $400.50 to donate to the Camden Library.

They haven't been the only ones helping though. The Central Arkansas Library System donated fines from overdue books to the effort to reorganize the Public Library of Camden and Ouachita County . CALS raised  $5,917.38 for the library.

If you would like to help out, here's how:

An account has been set up at First Bank in Camden. It is the Camden Ouachita County Public Library Building Fund. You can send a check to: First Bank, ATTN: Jim Murray, P. O. Box 10, Camden, AR 71711.
