Stuffed Animal Sleepover hijinks fun @ your library

The library hosted the first Stuffed Animal Sleepover @ the library!.  Patrons allowed their favorite stuffed animal to stay the night at the library. The security camera’s caught the hijinks and tomfoolery during the sleepover.  More photos are available on the library face book page at www.facebook.com/pages/north-bend-public-library…enjoy the fun

Summer Reading Program Community Hero Day

The theme for the last day of the Summer Reading Program was Community Heroes.  Our local volunteer fire department offered to come and give a safety lesson, let us squirt the water hose and tour the smoke filled trailer. It wasn’t real smoke, but it acted like it.  It was fun and interesting.  Here are a few photos of the event and more can be found on the library face book page at www.facebook.com/pages/north-bend-public-library


Thank you – North Bend Volunteer Fire Department for the great lessons and and being there when we need you!!!

Super Animals event was a hit!

1607028_1184068501618750_1568319708992160066_n[1] 11535855_1184068941618706_2799397910496772467_n[1] 11168130_1184069681618632_1497975383863850459_n[1]

Here are a few images of our Super Animals and all the fun activities @ your library.  We learned about the proper way to approach a dog, pet adoption, the Dodge County Humane Society, therapy animals and more. Our super power this week was giving back to the humane society.  We made simple dog treats which will be donated to the humane society once the dry.  We made over 60 treats and it was easy peasy!

Rolled Oats Peanut Butter No Bake Dog Treats

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup milk

3 cups rolled oats, not cooked

We cut the recipe in half and placed peanut butter and oats in gallon zip loc bags, mixed together-through the bag for about 5 minutes. Then added the milk and mixed some more until it was the consistency of cookie dough. Some of the bags needed more milk.  The actual recipe called for us to mix the pb and milk first, but we were on a time schedule and it worked this way, too.

Then rolled and molded the dough into balls or shapes for the treats. Dry on wax paper and then share with your favorite furry friend!
