2nd RIF Next Week

It’s time for a puppet show, (and a bit of jazz)! The second RIF (Reading is Fundamental) program will be held on Wednesday, March 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. “Jenny Giraffe’s Mardi Gras Ride” will be presented by local FBLA students and the Friends of the Library. The puppet show is based on the book of the same name by Cecilia Casrill Dartez. Craft fun have children creating Mardi Gras masks and of course, each child will be able to select their very own book to keep – children who were unable to attend the February program will be able to select two books! Plan now to attend for a fun evening! For more information contact the library at 334-3490 or stop by.
