LIBRARY NEWS:  It was WOW at the Kothe Memorial Library last week for our first 2 hour early out Lego Program. We had over 100 kids doing various activities.  We are grateful for all of the volunteers on hand to help assist us with whatever was needed. Those volunteers included Friends of the Parkersburg Library, BASC helpers, as well as other students and community members.  

The library's Lego programming is reflective of the nationwide STEM initative. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.  The Kothe Memorial Library is pleased to be a part of this effort.  Funding of this initiative was provided through a Wal-Mart Grant and by Friends of the Parkersburg Library. 

Please join us on Wednesday September 24 for our next 2 hour early out. We will have a Movie and Popcorn Program. This event is from 1:45 PM until 3 PM for elementary aged kids.
