Books-n-Bits – The Douglas County Public Library

We had great fun at the Douglas County Public Library last month when magician Marty Hahne and the Monkeys on Mars Puppet Show stopped by to entertain the kids. They just howled with laughter. We were very happy to have the Ava kindergarten summer school classes join us for these programs and to have them be part of our summer reading festivities. And we certainly enjoyed hearing stories of times past from Kathy Reser, Norma Stillings, and Marsha Thauwald as part of the Chamber of Commerce 2500 Miles of Art and Culture. Nina Carter and Janet Ariciu were gracious to spend time helping patrons with geneaology research, also as part of the 2500 Miles of Art and Culture. Our final program this season will be provided by the Douglas County Extension office. The date hasn’t been set yet, but we look forward to having them give us tips on eating smart and being active.
