2014 July As the Page Turns

July 2nd is the last summer reading program and the library is pleased to welcome Dan Dan the Magic Man to the library for a magic and comedy show.  This free program is open to all ages of kids and will be at 2:00pm at the library.

Summer reading has come to a close.  The youth have enjoyed the science theme and they really like doing experiments.  If you would like to continue these activities with your children or grandchildren you can follow the library on Pinterest to keep the Fizz! Boom! Read! fun going. 

The total enrollment for summer reading was 130 children ages 3-13 and there were 14 adults signed up to read.  These numbers are awesome.  Working with this many youth is not possible without the help of some wonderful volunteers and community businesses.  We appreciate all that the following people have done for the Summer Reading program: Steve Arthur, Kaelan Cameron, Lee Carlin, Richard Chandler, Central Kansas Library System, Felicity Conway, Kathy Conway, Stasha Conway, City of Osborne, Corner Cupboard, Allen Debay, Jessica Engler, Allison Grabast, Amanda Mans, Jessica Gregory, Spencer Heise, Main Street Drug, Susan Miller, National Weather Service, Osborne City Pool, Osborne County Recycling, Osborne Industries, Osborne Recreation Commission, Jana Pfannenstiel, Danny Pfannenstiel, Briley Pletcher, Post Rock Extension, Alex Schmidt, Bella Schmidt, Gwen Slabaugh, Grace Slabaugh, Billie Spears, Baylee Wolters, Kelli Wolters, and Parkes Wolters.

The library staff is looking for individuals or organizations that would like to share collections with the library.  They would be able to display these collections for two months in the library display case.  Please contact the library if you would like to do this or know of someone else that has a collection to share.
