Youth Education Day!

On October 7, 2016, I had the pleasure of having a booth in Fredericktown at the Youth Education Day event held by the University of Missouri Extension Office.  Branch Manager, Bill Knight, joined me, as we talked about the services our library offers and all of the fun things besides books that we have.  We reached out to many of the Fredericktown preschools and daycares as well as the Marquand School District. Each child took home a goodie bag with information packets, a pencil, eraser, and bookmark!

Old Miners' Day 2016

I want to thank everyone that stopped by the library's table at Old Miners' Day in Viburnum.  I had such a great time telling people about the library and helping the kids make bookmarks.  If you didn't get a chance to make it out, here's what you missed:

  • We made bookmarks to take home 
  • We had a raffle for adults and youth.  The adult winners received a library t-shirt or a library coffee mug.  The youth winners received a t-shirt or a free book.  
  • We had information on services we offer at the library as well as some specific flyers about services we offer for kids. 
  • Bookmarks were handed out with the new library hours.  Starting November 1, 2016, the Viburnum branch hours will change to Mondays 10-2 and Thursdays 2-6.  However, story time will still take place on Wednesdays at 2:30 so the library will be open from 2-4 on story time days for story hour.
Thanks again to everyone that came and below, you'll find some pictures of the event.
