PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest 2012: It's not too late to enter. Kids, bring your parent to the library for the rules and more information. Kindergarten through grade three are eligible to enter. There must be fantastic story tellers out there, that if put on paper, may become budding authors. Why not give it a try? The deadline is April 1, 2012.
In the Local Author Section of the Library you will find books by Carol Ryrie Brink, an excellent story teller, born in Moscow, Idaho in 1895, spending most of her life there. Her youthful years spanned a period from a rustic one story house to an era of paved roads and automobiles. After much sadness and tragedy in her life she became a writer and tells her story in more than thirty books. We are privileged to have four of her best works and available for your reading pleasure. Check them out!
A correction: The new arrival is TRASK, not TASK as reported last week. It is about the Trask River area in Oregon. Sorry about the typo.
Congratulations to both Prairie and Summit Girls Basketball teams and their coaches. Best of Luck at State. Play your best and whatever the outcome, you will always be champions in our book.
We can't all play a winning game-Someone is sure to lose,
Yet we can play so that our name, no one may dare accuse;
That when the Master Referee
Scores against our name,
It won't be whether we've won or lost,
But How We've Played the Game.
