The spring sessions of afterschool programs have ended for the first through fifth grades. Around 25 children participated in the 7-week adventure hosted by Children’s Librarian, Yvonne Jensen with help from volunteer, Hilary Kruse. The younger children experienced the magic of Tomie DePaola’s books and the older children became sleuth detectives and secret agents with Adam Sharp the series character created by George Edward Stanley.
