They learned about the different types of books available, displays, ongoing programming offered, their options for getting a library card and the names of both their youth librarian and clerk. Miss Val read them a story and let them browse books, while helping any children who asked find what they were looking for. They were sent home with flyers about their visit and stickers.

The library would like to offer similar group tours to local public and private schools, daycares, preschools and homeschool groups. Interested parties may call youth librarian Valetta Cannon at (620) 223-2882 or email [email protected] to book tours. Typical availability is M-F, 9-10 am & 2-5 pm.

Prepare your children for summer reading by introducing them to the library today!
