Many "heroes" with reading program


The summer program, “Every Hero Has A Story!” has come to an end.  We have had a lot of fun learning about heroes doing crafts and being entertained.

You have all been Super Hero’s by donating non-perishables for our local ACTS. You collected seven large boxes of food. We appreciate all who gave.

First, second and third place winners received backpacks full of prizes and goodies. Everyone attending the summer program received a a certificate, prize sack with candy and prizes along with a dog tag, glow necklace and bracelet.  If you missed the awards day at the library, you may pick up your prize at the library by Sep. 1.
