Congratulations to the lucky winners of our library raffle!  I hope you all enjoy reading your books.  Thank you to everyone who participated.  Your support for our library is greatly appreciated!  

We have spent the last few weeks learning about book care and getting to know the layout of the library.  It is so nice to see everyone excited about reading their library books.  

Please check out the Wendell Cross Virtual Library for some great fall read alouds.  Just click on the picture below to get started!
