July 26, 2017 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse


   Thank you to our ‘Build a Better World’ Summer Reading Program guest speakers, children, parents/caregivers and superb volunteers for making the program a success! Check out our website for photos of the fun, and a survey link to let us know how we did.


   We have games, Legos, coloring pages, and more-stop in and relax and cool off from the heat and humidity.  Be sure to take a look at the creative formal dress on display, compliments of three local high school girls. The cardboard formal was an assignment for their Fashion Design class at the A-P High School this past spring.  Thank you, Miranda, Emilee and Lauren, for sharing your awesome talent with us! Please see the photo with this article.
