LIBRARY NEWS: This year's FIZZ BOOM READ summer reading program at the Kothe Memorial Library was a HUGE SUCCESS.  We had some terrific presenters, great stories and over-the-top participation from kids ages preschool through 6th grade.  We had a total of 212 kids who attended, which is an 11% increase from last year. 

Another reason for success were all the volunteers that helped make our programming run smoothly. We had many adults as well as kids and older siblings that offered to help. We want to say a very special thank you to everyone who made 2014 a terrific year.  We couldn't have done it without such great  help.
