Lois crochetingOur dear friend, Lois Moen, died last Thursday at the age of 86. She was the president of our Library Board of Trustees for years, and more recently participated faithfully in our book club. She was always a ray of sunshine when she stopped in to chat and check out books–and even crochet! What a sweetheart. Our condolences go out to her family and everyone who loved her.

Heroes from History! Tuesday, July 21, @ 1:30! Two local storytellers will take turns telling us the true stories of local heroes. Both happened in the region over 100 years ago. Terry Visger tells the story of how Kate Shelley saved a train when the bridge went out. Teri Wachuta tells the story of what Felix Spiller did when the steamship War Eagle sunk. We’ll follow the presentation by dividing into age groups for books and crafts. Everyone is welcome, and it’s free!
