Librarian's Report:

  • Kris attended the Performer’s Showcase on September 24th in Atlantic.  Performers gave a short show to librarians who are interested in booking them for the summer library program next summer.  Kris went to get an idea of the cost of the performances, so she can apply for grants for this program for next summer.
  • Kris went to the school on September 29th to talk to students from preschool age to 4th grade about the October activities at the Library.  This has been a big boon to our library in October.  Three new families came to the library as a direct result of her visit.  Kris has 41 entries in the Halloween Coloring Contest already!
  • Kris weeded 3 adult books in September.
