Library News

Story time was extra fun with Mrs. Barb last week! Thank you, Barb, for presenting the theme of ‘Springtime Birds’ with the kids, and thank you to the parents/caregivers for bringing your little ones!

We’ve recently received a donation to purchase books in memory of Parkersburg’s former 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Margaret Cosner.  A bookplate has been created with her photo to honor her. Please see photo attached to this article.

Coming soon:  National Library Week!  We have extra programs and fun on the schedule for April 9-14 to celebrate National Library Week.  Jess Steege will present an informative program about Yoga on Monday, April 9 at 7 pm.  See details on this program and more in next week’s article.
