Children Program
July has arrived and with all the rain we had in June, it looks like it is going to be a hot, humid month. When you are taking a break from playing outside or stuck in the car on a road trip, do not forget to take time to listen to Dial-A-Story.

Dial-A-Story is a short folk story that your child can listen to on your phone. Just dial 660-827-7838, put the phone on speaker and enjoy the story. Story changes each Monday unless the library is closed for a holiday.

July 3 - 9 "The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse"
July 10 - 16 "The Cat and the Parrot"
July 17 - 23 "Lazy Jack"
