We had a group of 10 attendees on June 28 for a very interesting program, Healing Oils of the Bible, presented by Laura Bauman.
Then, on July 2, our summer reading program on wind energy was held. Children in attendance made and took home colorful pinwheels.
Reading program participants need to hand in their reading logs by July 19 in order to receive prizes. Looking ahead: Story time will start up earlier than usual this year. We will begin on Tuesday, July 15 at 10:00 and continue through the school year. Val Ehlers will do the first program.
