Library staff are busy coming up with more clever categories for this year's program and having a blast finding books for each of them.

Something's Fishy


We've been having a series of guest readers for kids come to the Library this fall and it has been quite fun. We are happy to welcome our local Conservation Warden, Kaitlin Kernosky, to the Library on Thursday December 15th from 3:30 to 4:30pm. Kaitlin will be reading a "fishy story" and we'll also be doing a fun water science demonstration/experiment and of course enjoying some treats. These programs are targeted for elementary aged youth but anyone is welcome to attend. We hope you will take a break from your busy holiday schedule to join us for something fishy. We extend many thanks to Kaitlin for sharing her time and expertise with us. We hope to see a lot of you on the 15th.
