Going over the rules - Scrabble Club

Our newly formed Scrabble Club started with a bang last night. We had around 20 people attend and as of today, 31 people have signed up. There was food and drink and many new friendships formed. I do not think any table had too many challenges, but you never know what will happen in the future. If you are interested in the Scrabble Club, please call or stop by the library.

That ain't working...

...that's the way you do it.

We (Terry, Tammy, Donna, Melinda, Bridgette, and I) recently went to a Technology Fair sponsored by the Mississippi Library Commission. We had the chance to try out all types of new gadgets and games. In all, we had a great time. Some of us even won door prizes.

Family Story Time with Ms. Lee

Ms. Lee conducted a Family Story Time for us today and we had around 35 children attend. It went really well. Her theme was something to do with a "jungle." A "jungle" theme that is.
