The library has been busy this summer with the Summer Reading Program, The Hat Days Parade, and The magician Robert Halbrook presenting his program "Imagineering at our Local Library". We also have an afternoon movie with free popcorn every Thursday. Everyone is welcome. Showing on this blog is a short clip of the Hat Days Parade. This is the first year the library has participated in the parade. It was a wonderful success with many children wearing costumes that represented ways to be creative including a magician (Alex Dainton), a dancer (Camille Dainton), a Fiber Artist (Abby Hanna), two Musicians (Zander Benz and BAiley Hintz), an Artist (Avery Lokken) and a Chef (Anna Henningsgaard). The Library flag was carried by Zach Duin and the Banner was carried by Leah Schmitt and Morgan Crowser. Other participants helping pass out bags with posters and information about the library were Maverick Maynard, Mitch Ehlenz, Kathie Behrens, Minday Maas and Bev Benz. The costumes, organization, signs, calling kids, and advertising was all put together by Assistant Librarian Mindy Maas.
