For the entire summer, colorful postcards were made available to the children, so that they could write their messages and place them in our own special "Mailbox". The results were very sweet, and in some cases, amusing. Very...

  Who built a better Birdhouse? We had 17 very fine entries in our family contest this year, and it was a tough call to decide which ones would come out on top of the tree in the judging. Each and every house entered showed wonderful craftsmanship and imagination! It was a joy for everyone to be able to view them on display in the Children’s Library. First place went to the Dinndorf Family, who crafted a very charming birdhouse, incorporating...
