Our Irish dancers had to cancel their March 26 performance at the library. They had a good reason: their daughter is going to state with her science fair project.

Instead of dancing like the Irish that day, we're going have "An Egg-cellent Evening" of crafts and fun from 6:30-7:30 p.m. All ages are welcome, but activities cater to elementary students and their families. Registration is not required for this free event. The first 18 to sign in will receive crafts and snacks.



Please call me at 682-4432 with questions.



It’s a girl Saturday on March 16. If you are 6 years old or older and a chapter book reader, read, "Kit Saves the Day" and come to American Girl Book Club from 10 a.m. to noon!



If you are 12-18, join Just Bookin’ It Book Club from 2-4 p.m. Call me for more information.

Teachers, I am available to come visit your classroom and the library is available for field trip tours.



Thank you, Michelle Williams, for coordinating a library tour for Walker Elementary’s first-graders. Students also visited the post office, where they mailed valentines; First National Bank; and McDonalds, which made for a great field trip.
