Wednesday is World Read Aloud Day. The Day’s purpose is to emphasis the importance of reading. Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate. The library has a list of great books to read aloud to your child. Find out why reading aloud is important.
I am the library's Program Supervisor and work with staff to help organize, promote, and create programs for the library. My creative passion is art and crafts. I have had several dough art and clay books published (type my name in the card catalog). For the last ten years I have turned my focus toward gourd art and hope you'll see me published on that topic someday too.
