Library Corner – Week of January 28, 2019

Family Literacy Night    

Thank you to the 32 children, parents and grandparents who celebrated Family Literacy Day and joined us for Family Reading Fort Night at the Library on January 24th.  The children enjoyed s’mores, stories and games around the “campfire” and the reading forts were OUTSTANDING!

Kayla Swayze was the lucky winner who guessed closest to the correct number of popcorn (350) in the pail and she was delighted to take home the pail with 365 pieces of popcorn!  After building the spectacular reading fort Isabelle MacKay was the lucky winner of the attendance book draw.

We hope to see you in January 2020 for another FAMILY FORT NIGHT!

The new large print rotation books are now available for circulation and will be available until May.
