Rochelle Pennington was fantastic!

As Rochelle Pennington told the story of 'The Christmas Tree Ship', the audience was absolutely mesmerized.  There are so many interesting aspects to this TRUE story.  It was a joy to hear this history during the Christmas season! Rochelle by the bulletin board that Colette created for her visit.

Cherry and Colette and bunny

On the afternoon of August 21, 2009 we celebrated the end of the summer reading program called "Be Creative @ Your Library" by hosting a community talent fair.  14 guests shared their talents with our guests.  Talents ranged from quilt making to motorcycling as a hobby.  In this picture, librarian Colette talks with Cherry from the City of Seymour about her rabbits and rabbit showing.
