Rupert Elementary students visit the library

The Rupert Elementary students, (all 180 students), visited the Rupert Public Library to help us celebrate National Library Week 2015.  Each student has a library card.  These students are such a joy to have visit us.  They are so eager to check out books and read.  On hand to help the staff were Deloris Lilly, Nancy Cueto, Barbara Hill, and Teresa Andrews.   Library Director Carol McClung and Library Aide Novella Perkins were handling the circulation desk.  It was a fun day.  We look forward to seeing them more often and hearing their stories about the books they read.

Easter Egg Hunt

Our first annual Easter Egg Hunt was held Saturday, March 28th inside the library.  Although we had a snow storm that morning the families came out to enjoy the hunt.  Over 50 children hunted eggs and enjoyed the festivities.  Nancy Cueto read books to the children as well as the adults.  Seven prizes were given away as well each child received a "goodie" bag to take home.  Homemade cookies and punch were served after the egg hunt. 
The winners of the prizes were: Elizah Russell, Hunter Hendrix, Madison Carr, Kyndall Taylor, Brooklynn McKenzie, Shannen Mooney, and Kristen McClung.
A special thanks goes to all the volunteers:  Glenda Killen, Mary Erdely, Janice Welsh, Nancy Cueto, Cleo Novak, Sue Nickell, and Teresa Andrews.  Thanks to Deloris Lilly for making cookies. 
Library staff members Carol McClung, and Novella Perkins wish to thank the community for their support of the library.  It was a wonderful day enjoyed by all.
