The library front is looking better and better every day. We now have grass! Thanks to Dorothy Duerfeldt for her donation of sod, the looks of the front changed overnight from dirt to a beautiful green. Thanks to our landscaper, Judy Arnold, we are starting to see some wonderful plantings. Her expertise and good eye is ensuring that the front of the library will offer the community a lovely green space. Thanks to Tracy Hand for his work in laying the sod and getting our sprinklers up and going. It is so exciting to watch these changes take place and have the front of the library be beautiful once again. Just wait until it is all complete! We hope you will be pleased with these new changes and enjoy your library even more. We love this library and hope you do as well!
BOOK CLUB IS TAKING A BREAK FOR THE SUMMER.
The library Book Club will be taking a break for the summer months. We will gather again on the first Tuesday in September (the 6th) and our discussion will be favorite reads that we have enjoyed over the summer. Book Club is a fun time and open to everyone so mark your calendar now to join us in September. Then read, read, read over the summer and make a list of the books you have enjoyed. In September, we will also organize for all of our upcoming Book Club meetings.
OUR LATEST 1000B4K READERS!
Congratulations to Darby Murphy (pictured on the left) and Samantha Liebhart (pictured on the right) for the accomplishment of reading 1000 books before kindergarten! Each of these readers received their very own library card and a special book bag for reaching this goal. Compliments to the parents, Mike and Wendy Murphy and Brett and Jessica for helping their children reach this goal. Darby and Samantha join 8 other children in this accomplishment! That means a total of 10,000 books have been read by these children! AMAZING!!! We are so proud of you all!
IT IS ALMOST TIME FOR SUMMER READING!
WEDNESDAY, MAY 25TH TO JUNE 29TH – AGES 5 YRS THROUGH 5TH GRADE
THURSDAY, MAY 26TH TO JUNE 30TH – PRESCHOOL, AGES 1 – 4 YRS
Summer reading is scheduled to start on May 25th! We have lots of exciting things planned with some fun activities and loads of incentive prizes. We believe it is important for children to read during the summer while school is in recess so they can retain their reading skills and will not lose ground when they start school again in the fall. Help us get this done by encouraging your children to attend summer reading and to continue to read. We are ready to keep them supplied with books (we have a few), now we just need you!
