Our February promotion this month was "Blind Date with a Book". We wrapped several books and placed them on a table. Patrons could check out the books, read them and then answer a short survey. Names were put in a hat and Ron Duett was the winner of a gift card.
Yesterday during our teen program, our activity for the day was tornado in a jar. Yes, you read that right. Add a little dish soap and a little vinegar, shake and you have a tornado in a jar.

If you are in grades 6th-12th Grade, we would love to see you at the library on Wednesdays at 4:30. It last an hour and its FREE to public.
