Michele Knaack did an outdoor story time at the library on May 14. Story time is now over for the summer. We had a good group of volunteers who helped with this. People doing story programs this school year were: Mike Anderson, Donna Brandt, Mardel Brockett, Sherris Brown, Brenda Dinsdale, Cherie Eckhoff, Adam Heise, Beth Johans, Dorothy Keith, Michele Knaack, Mary Loynachan,Reinbeck Firefighters, Lisa Roose, Ellen Schweppe, Pat Shutters, Irma Thede, Erica Thesing, Sue Trunck, Cal Turner, Harriet White, Jason Willey and Adrienne Williams. A children's book, Oh the Things You Can Do that are Good for You by Tish Rabe has been ordered in honor of these people. The list of names will be placed in the book.
Watch for our children's summer reading program, Dig Into Reading. We will have programs every Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. during the month of June. The programs will be held at the Memorial building in the Legion Room: June 5th: Curtis Alan Hed magic show, June 12th: Mike Anderson, "the Dulcimer Guy" music and story telling. June 19th: Grundy Co. conservationist, June 26th: "Incrediblebats" program with live bats by Sharon Peterson. All programs are free and open to the public. Children in the 6th grade and under have a chance at earning free ice cream treats and movie rentals at Truncks, as well as a free book at the end of the program. Those who take part also have a chance at winning various in a drawing held in July. Contact the library for more information.
