Pet Show 2011


Pet Show 2011

A sunny evening and more than forty pets made this year's Pet Show a great success. Participants included a bearded dragon, a chinchilla, a colorful, orange corn snake, and several breeds of cats; along with many pugs, labs, boxers and other dogs. Thank you to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun!

Reading Patch Club

Reading is cool and so is being a member of this exciting library club!

Students in Grades K-5, who are reading on their own, will earn colorful embroidered patches during the school year.

Children may join the club at any time during the school year. To earn a patch, readers can read 10 books in each category - either chosen from our Reading Club lists or on their own.
