In June the library hosted several great summer reading programs like Karen Climer’s Crazy Balloon Show, Neframimi and the Magical Pyramid and Swamp Girl Adventures. Our special storytime guest  was Miss Melinda McAtee who presented a story on “Attentiveness”.  Children and parents loved her enthusiasm and positive message. (pictured)
