This delightful poem is written in the same style as the famous ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” – just for a different holiday – and every bit as fun!


A prize of a green shamrock hat will be given for the most original, decorative candy.


The library will be open at 4:30.


Participants will receive a coupon for a special gift at the Starr Street Diner.

Grown-up storytime is a hit. Will be regular program

2 March 2014

Grown-up Storytime was a hit! Those who attended loved it, and several people who could not attend wish that they had.

So, this will become an ongoing event, held every Tuesday at 12:30. Each week we will read a short story. Participants have all expressed an interest primarily in western stories, and nostalgic short stories. These are open to all – young and old. We are seeking volunteer readers as well as people who wish to be read to.

The next one will be from The Peterkin Papers, held on March 11. The following one will be from Short Story Smorgasbord by Frederick Laing.
