In honor of National Library Week, (April 7-13, 2019) we held a contest for kids in town to win a chance to be Librarian for a day! We received SO many great entries we decided to give each kid a shot to see if they have what it takes to be a future librarian. They got to shadow one of our librarians & learn all about shelving, programming & more.Take a look at our aspiring library leaders below!
