Ronald McDonald Visits the Library!

Ronald McDonaldLast Tuesday, our Summer Reading Program drew to an end with a special performance by the always entertaining Ronald McDonald!  He put on a delightful magic show for the children and then later charmed the adults at the library.  Thanks, Ronald!

The Trolls are coming!

Come and create these clever little guys from Norway!  They haunt bridges and get outsmarted by goats.  They turn to stone in sunlight and are reportedly very stupid.  In a very popular book and movie, a full grown Mountain troll was defeated by it's own club and a wand up the nose.  In another favorite tale it took an elf, a dwarf, a wizard, two men, and four hobbits to defeat the great ugly thing.  In my favorite cartoon show from when I was little they were a little more cunning, but were alway outwitted by the gnomes! They're trolls of course!  Come make one of your very own on Wednesday, August 16th at 5pm.
