Last week in Review: We had a GREAT Time at our Valentine Party on Tuesday after school ... over 45 kids were in for snacks, games and just hanging out! Thanks to the kids, their parents & our volunteers for helping make the Party such a SUCCESS!! We had a fun group at Story Hour on Wednesday, too! We learned about Kindness and Sharing, made Hearts to put into books for Random Acts of Kindness Week and had treats & juice! Hope to see you next Wednesday for Another Fun Children’s Story Hour at 10 am!! A Special Thank You: A Beautiful Donation in Memory of Charles Fish and in the Honor of his Wife, Beloved Kindergarten Teacher, Becky Fish was presented to the Gladbrook Library this Week. A Wonderful New Book, “The Three Questions”, was given by Mrs. Bailey and the 4-B Class of G-R School. What a Lovely Remembrance! Also, Beth and I would like to give a Personal “Thank You” to the Alpha Study Group for their Wonderful Surprise Gifts... Beautiful Framed Sayings about Librarians. Stop in to see them, as we have them sitting Proudly on our Desks !!
