From the Douglas County Public Library We had great fun last month when magician Marty Hahne and entertainer Rick Rayburn performed for us at the Douglas County Public Library. This month we will have more fun when Yorik the Wonder Dog visits the library Thursday, July 13, at 7 p.m. Come by and be amazed at all the tricks he can do. On Thursday, July 20, at 7 p.m., we will welcome Elizabeth Brown who will present a hands-on program on etched glass for adults. Supplies will be provided, but you are asked to bring an X-Acto craft knife if you have one. Because we will be working with knives and glass, this will not be a suitable program for children. Admission is free to all library programs.
