Even though our special events of the summer reading program have ended (check out all the great photos on our Facebook page), don’t forget you can keep reading and earning prizes through the end of July. Twelve youngsters have already completed all their goals and earned all 5 prizes. You can too! Keep reading, have someone take your picture while reading and keep your skills sharp. The first day of school is right around the corner.
The last event of this summer’s “Reading Takes You Everywhere” program will be Saturday, July 14 at 10am. Mad Science of St. Louis will be here with their Up, Up and Away show, all about air and motion. They’ll bring a hovercraft, a mini hot air balloon and lots of silly, crazy science experiments. Everyone who comes will win an attendance prize and we have some great ones, from St. Louis cardinals tickets, jigsaw puzzles and reusable drink bottles to a handmade fleece throw.
The library will be closed Wednesday, July 4, for Independence Day. Have a safe and happy holiday celebration!
Come meet the local author of the popular children’s book series, “Pickin’ Chicken”. There will be stories, games and even chicken feed for a snack. This event is free, begins at 2pm and is part of our summer reading program, Reading Takes You Everywhere!
The library will be closed Monday May 28 for Memorial Day.

This week was Perri’s last day as library clerk. We wish her well and welcome new clerk, Jane Molitor.
Sadly, Miss Perri has given notice that she is leaving the library to spend more time with her family. Her last day will be Wed. April 25. The library would like to invite any and all to stop in any time that day from 10am to 4pm and share memories, say good-bye and wish her well. There will also be cake!
