Beautiful Weather

The cold front has finally hit, and I can say that I am happy. Finally have my windows open. Love the nip in the air. Which has me starting plans for decorating for Halloween. This year the Elm Creek Township/Wilsey Library is doing the Hallo-Weenie Roast for Wilsey. Stop by the shelter house at the Wilsey Park while Trick or Treating and Trick or Treat with us. We will have Hot Dogs & Chips available along with warm drinks. If you are not going to be home on Halloween you are welcome to bring your candy to the park and the children can pick it up there.

September already

Not sure how we are already in September, but we are. Congratulations to our patron Elvie for winning the August prize for checking out a Western Book from our book collection. For the month of September you can be entered into the drawing by checking out one of our books that has never been checked out before. This is also open to all ages!!!

School Starting Soon

We are on the final week of summer vacation. School for USD 417 starts next Thursday Aug 16th. Where has the summer gone. We have 18 new books here in the library in our collection, and a new exchange of Book Mobile books arrived yesterday.

Our check out challenge for August is Western books. Check out a Western Book from our book collection and be entered into a drawing for a prize. Last month Barbara won. The check out challenges are for kids going into 6th Grade through Adults.

And before those little ones go back to school, bring them into the library. 3 years ago when I became the Librarian I started a tradition of taking photos of the kids holding a chalk board. On the chalk board it has their name, age, grade, and what they want to be when they grow up. I display the photo’s on our back to school bulletin board, and my hope is to mail all the pictures to the kids when they graduate.
