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.

Local News

Wanted to share this article, always nice to see Council Grove/Morris County in print!!! If you have never gotten to go through the old post office, it really is a must. Absolutely beautiful. My family finally had the opportunity to go through it this past spring. And we can’t wait to go back in, we were in a hurry and so we weren’t able to take our time.


Come out and support the Morris County Arts and watch over 50 of our youth perform in the Musical “Annie Jr.” All of the kids have worked supper hard and are excited to perform for you. Hope you are able to catch one of the three performances.
