Library News: It's hard to believe we finished up our final week of the summer reading program, "Every Hero has a Story". Our special guests included lifeguards Clara Peterson and Sidney Schneiderman from the Parkersburg Pool. They shared great tips for helping out a distressed swimmer at a lake, including using a cooler, basketball and tackle box. The safety rules at the pool were reviewed and those who remembered them were tossed a life ring .....a Lifesaver candy. Elizabeth Stickfort visited us for story time, played her ukulele and sang some silly songs about her dog who tried to run away.  Also available for petting and snuggles was Cooper, a companion dog . We thank his owner, Carol Lilenthal, for attending our programs and sharing Cooper with us.  Jo Baedke joined us to ready the books, Brave Norman and Sadie: the dog who finds the evidence. Superhero balloon games and cool pool jello treats topped off our fund. Reminder: those Summer Reading Participants who have attended at least one program, and turned in their reading goal and minutes ready by July 8, are eligible to attend the Hot Dog Supper and Pool Party on July 9. Stop in or call the Library with any questions.
