Hula Hoop’in day at the Library

Our Summer Reading program is in full swing. This past Wednesday was our 2nd Summer Reading Event and we learned about the benefits of Hula Hooping. One minute of Hula Hooping burns 7 Calories and it helps work your core muscles. We also did an activity as a group where you send a hula hoop around a circle with out breaking hands. And the kids even did it with 2 hoops!!!

We had a few kids that tried to hoop 5 Hula Hoops at once. The world record is 105 hula hoops at the same time. They did pretty good. This next week we will be talking about bicycles.

Dear Crafter’s

Hello to all of my Crafter’s and Pintrest junkies. If you have been looking for old books to do crafts with then come in and see me. I’ve been working on doing some weeding and have come across several books that are ready to be upcycled. Currently I have a few saved back for things I would like to due here at the library, but we have several. Also I have the Re-purposing kit from NCKLS if you are wanting to do a craft but need ideas.

Wish me luck, I am trying to make some roses out of old book pages.

If you think you would like to volunteer to help, please contact me at My hope is that in a few weeks to have a list of actives and have times in stone. I am very excited with this being my first year as Director and getting to do the Summer Reading Program and hope that your kids are getting excited too.

Spring Break Event

Come into the Library from 2pm – 6pm for a Break it and Remake it Event. We will be tearing apart old computers, learning what the parts are and what they do, see if they still work and ways to reuse them. Matt Asebedo (Librarian’s Husband!!) will be here to teach us. He is a computer technician for the Kansas Army National Guard for over 10 years. He will also teach the kids basic maintenance for a computer.

We will have different level’s for all the kids, so No Age is excluded…..this includes adults!!!
