The librarian wishes to thank
the parents of the Story Hour
members for their splendid co-
operation in sending their chil-
dren to the practices held in
preparing for the public pro-
gram staged by the Story Hour
groups. Without the parents'
help in this matter, it would
have been impossible to present
the children in such a program.
We are happy that the parents
of our community realize that
these public programs which
present the tiny tots in a per-
formance each summer are ar-
ranged as a part of the training
offered to those who belong to
Story Hour. Parents, we com-
mend you for your cooperation
and interest in this part of the
library program, and we thank
you for your appreciation of
this phase of the children's

Again, two of our library pat-
rons have remembered the li-
brary by donating some of their
own books.

Peggy Scarce, member of the
Girl's Library Club, gave a de-
lightful little book called
''Sleepy Time Stories.'' This
book contains a collection of
stories which have long been
favorites with children. We ap-
preciate Peggy's thoughtfulness
in giving this book to the li-

Mrs. Roy Burnette has very
kindly remembered the library
by donating a book entitled
''Hungry Hill.'' This title, writ-
ten by Daphne du Maurier, has
been very popular, and we
thank Mrs. Burnette for her
kindness in giving a copy of
this book to the library.

Several Story Hour children
have recently had their tonsils
removed at the Wood Memorial
Clinic. These children are Lin-
da Burnette, Marcia Dale Bur-
gess, and Aaron McCollum. We
are glad that these youngsters
are getting along nicely, and

River Falls.

When we arrived at the Fish
Hatchery, we took off our
shoes and went to see the fish.
We saw one huge fish which
looked like it was blue.

Then we went to the river.
The rocks in the water and the
flowers on the bank made it
very beautiful. We waded in
the water, which was very cold
at first but we soon got used
to it. After wading awhile, we
roasted the hotdogs and then
returned to the river.

Sandra and I were standing
on a rock when Martha Robin-
son saw a lizard on it. Sandra
jumped and I almost fell in the

Finally it was time to go
home, but no one wanted to

On the return trip, we saw
three red birds which were red
as could be.

Upon returning to Slater,
everyone said they had a good
time and then went home.
