May 2, 2018  Kothe Library Article for Eclipse

   Tomorrow is our Spring Tea and historical program with guest speaker, Kathy Wilson.  Call the library to reserve your spot today! The program, “You Want Me to Wear What?!?”  begins at 1:30 pm.  All are welcome to attend this free program sponsored by the Friends of the Parkersburg Library.

   On Saturday, all children grades K-6 are welcome to attend a bike safety class at 10:30 am with Mr. Lex Dannenbring.  It will be helpful but not required to bring your bikes and helmets if you have them.  Mr. Lex has lots of biking experience and is ready to teach us how to bike safely! Please call the library with any questions at 319-346-2442.

   Our winners from National Library Week’s drawing for the gift baskets are:  Janel W., Shonna B. and Kaylee J.  Congrats!

   We would like to extend our thanks to Heather from Midwest One Bank for being our guest reader at storytime last week, as well as Sarah from Grundy County Memorial Hospital for teaching us ways to stretch during our last Early-Out after school program for the season.  We’re busy preparing lots of fun for Summer Reading Program…coming soon in June!

   The beautiful display by Becky Schrage will be on display for a couple more weeks.  If you haven’t stopped by to look at the creative ways to use old worn books, we invite you to do so! Please see photo with this article.  Thanks, Becky, for sharing your talent with us!
