Pre-school Tours the Library

The Pre-school came to visit us this past week!
We welcomed 22 visitors to our library, and Ms. Jennifer read them a story and took them on a tour. We aren’t a large library, but we have lots of fun things for the children to see and do, including a children’s section that is 1/4 of the entire building! They enjoyed our Seek and Find door, as well as seeing and learning all we had to offer.

 

Thank you for coming to visit us….We can’t wait to have you come tour the new library next year!
