The events of April were reported on by Shawneene and included the Easter egg hunt, Greene County Reads and Toddler Fest.  Our library was able to count a share of attendance at these events, except Toddler Fest, as there was only one from Rippey attending, so the total was divided between the five remaining libraries.

The next meeting will be held Monday, May 21, 2018 at 6:00 in the library.  Note the change of date due to Memorial Day falling on our regular meeting day.
