April 2018

Director's Note

Wow did we have a packed house for our Stuffed Animal Sleepover on the 23rd! Almost 70 people (plus staff and volunteers) packed the library for an evening family storytime and sleepover (for the stuffed animals). Boy do those stuffed animals get up to some crazy things when the library lights go out! We love this event and just appreciate how the community supports us! We try to do this one in the fall and spring. So don’t worry- we will do this one again! A huge thank you to Chad Johnson for being our photographer again! The pictures are so fun!

Spring is here and we are getting busy. Check out all the fun things we have going on and mark your calendars! We have programming for every age group in April- including the 4th and 5th graders! It is going to be a great month!
