Librarian's Report:

        An adult pen and pencil workshop was held in the library during March.  This group was led by          Marge Wooters.  They met 3 Saturdays in March.  A total of 27 participated in this class during          this time.  The women remarked how they liked the large table to work on and the good                    lighting.  I extended a welcome to the group to come any Saturday morning to work on their              art.

        Dr. Seuss Day was held March 7th.  Seventeen children wore Dr. Seuss hats, listened to Fox            on Sox, made the Lorax with paper plates and tissue paper, played Dr. Seuss games, and                made a snack looking like the hat from The Cat in the Hat.  These were made from Oreos,                frosting, and gummy life savers.  A drawing was held for a Dr. Seuss Day book bag.  Children          checked out books and chose a Dr. Seuss bookmark.

         The library was closed 2 days for weather.
