Mini Comic Con ... a great success! PDF Print

If you weren't able to come to the recent Mini Comic Con held at the library recently, you missed a great time! The kids dressed in amazing and adorable costumes, took fabulous pictures in the photo booth, tested their strength at the Super Hero Training Academy, and perfected their drawing skills at the Superhero Drawing Workshop. Several lucky winners snagged beautifully decorated cookies, bags of books, and other fun gifts. For more pictures, take a look at the set on Flickr.

Stuffed Animal Sleepover PDF Print


At our recent "Stuffed Animal Sleepover" program at the the library, we celebrated the favorite stuffed friends of our youngest patrons.  Rabbits, dogs, and teddy bears of all colors and sizes were guests at our library. Families enjoyed a story and then tucked their favorite stuffed friends into bed.  You wouldn't believe the things our new animal friends did when the library closed for the night!

Visit our Flickr set for some eye-popping pictures of the stuffed animal library takeover.
