At the Library for May 3rd, 2016

Updated 2016/05/02

Blair Farish’s ‘The Clockwatcher’ is out in a brand new revised and illustrated edition. Farish—who barely survived the crash of a search and rescue plane near St. Mary’s Lake in 1983—wrote about his long and unimaginably painful recovery in the book’s first edition published in 1985. He has now updated his story with eight new chapters, chronicling what he calls “a wonderful final outcome.” This is a highly recommended read; a true story full of hope and inspiration.

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Flowers!
