Do you have little to no artistic talent?  Then come to the library today to participate in our “paint by sticker” de-stressing activity.  No artistic talent is needed! However, if you do have artistic ability, you might want to consider entering the library’s “Thank you for the Music” writing contest!  For more details, see Ms. Weber!

Congrats to the boys baseball team on winning their 3rd league game in a row, remaining in first place.  Excellent pitching by Conner Stapleford, Thorpe, and Ben Zarnke provided the way to an 8-4 win over Blakelock.. Well done
