Last week in Review: It was another Wild Ride this past week in Gladbrook! Crazy Winds and State Basketball made for lower than usual numbers of Group Members for our Adult Coloring and Crochet Groups, but High Numbers for After School Activities like our Art and Science Nights! Art Night on Tuesday was filled with Kiddos, Paint and Bookends, as they Artistically came together to make Beautiful Additions to our Book Shelves! Over 30 kids enjoyed painting and glittering up the Bookends, all with their own Special touches, names and patterns. Each will be showcased in our Early Reader, Youth Fiction and Young Adult Sections! Thanks to All Helpers and Participants that made the evening Special! Wednesday we had only one family venture out for Children’s Story Hour. The Murty Kids enjoyed Reading Stories about Windy Days & things that Fly, took a pic of Cooper holding onto a Kite and then made it into bookmark to take home, he colored a Kite picture for our Color Wall and had a Kite Krispy Treat with Licorice String... A Big Thanks to Mom, Beth for Bringing her Littles down to see me! Thursday afternoon was filled with Kids and A SLIME Science Project, enjoyed by ALL who attended!! Beth had a Full House of Fun making this Slimey Colorful Goop with more Kids than initially Expected… but as Always she Handled it Great! Watch for more Teen Project Nights to Come next Month! A Special Thank You: Again this week we would like to send A Special Thank You out to some Wonderful People/Families who have given Monetary Donations and Items towards Kids Programming and Crafts, Given Boxes of Books for our Youth and Adults Sections and even a Beautiful Book on the Progression of our Railways, that for a Train Lover, is a Must See!
