The March story hour was held at the New England Public Library on March 11, the activities were organized by Jodi Olsonawski. Sophie Olsonawski read the books “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” “Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site,” and “How to Catch a Leprechaun” for the children attending.

Then they each made a leprechaun hat by coloring and cutting out a copied pattern of a hat then added gold glitter with a paper band around their heads. Everyone had a multi colored cupcake with green frosting before checking out books for reading at home.

Our last story hour for the season is April 1 at 10 a.m. The next children’s activity will be our summer reading program which begins on June 1.

The book club has read “Orphan Train” and had a very good time discussing it. The group of eight ladies are now reading “Home Front” by Kristin Hannah and will  meet on April 2 to talk about it.

A big thank you to the family of Kay Kuske who  gave a great donation  to the library in memory of Kay.  Kay enjoyed the library and had served on the library board in the past. Her name will be included on our memorial board inside the library. If you would like to make a donation in memory  of a loved one please contact  the library.

The American Legion has supported the library with monies to pay for our book lease program again this year. The program makes it possible for the library to have on the shelves some of the latest released books. Some of those titles are: “A Piece of the World” by Christina Baker Kline, “My Not so Perfect Life”, by Sophie Kinsella, and “The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill” by Julie Klassen.
