The Library will be closed on Wednesday, July 31st, so that staff can attend training. Thank you.

Don't forget that kids can still earn beads for their necklaces for the rest of the summer. Check in at the Library with Mrs. Herzberg for details.

Look for an electronic survey for Summer Reading Program, coming soon!

We had a "BLAST" in the Heritage Days Parade, July 6th

Summer Reading Program Water Fight on July 10th was cancelled due to weather that was possibly cold & rainy. First time we ever had to cancel. 

Instead, we met in the Villisca Community Building and played various games, the parachute, and wacky relays. We also shot off Coke and Mentos!

Hey Kids! (and Parents)

Here's a great website to check out anytime from the National Center for Family Literacy. It has a free, online program with weekly interactive activities. Check it out, have some fun, then go read a book :)

The photos of The Biggest Snowman Ever! Contest have been moved to the READING tab, inside the CONTESTS folder on the left-hand side.

Photos of Summer Reading Program are slowly being added. So far we have Deb Karwal's (Montgomery County Conservation Educator) Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, Box Turtle, and Fox Snake.
