PALS Class visits the library

The Cedar Vale Elementary PALS class came to visit the library on Monday, January 18, 2010. The PALS class all got library cards to take home and have their parents fill out, so that they can come back and check out books with their class. I gave them a tour of the library, and then showed them how to check out books. They all went to the children’s section and picked out books to look at. Most of them had never been to the library so I think it was a very fun experience for them!

Saturday Story time

We will be having a story time on the 1st Saturday of every month. It will be at 10:30 a.m. We will read a story and do other activities. Children of all ages, accompanied by their parents, are welcome!
