Thank you all the people who attended the Mad Science Show onThursday, July 24 at Walker School. It was a fun show, enjoyed by many. This program is part of our “Fizz, Boom, Read!” summer program. It was funded by a grant from the Rose and Samuel Rudman Library Trust. The trust was created to encourage libraries in smaller communities to continue and expand programming and outreach.

My apologies if I missed anything. I recently had a "cellphone malfunction" and lost some voicemails along the way. Keep trying and I will do my best to get everything in.

That's about it for this week. If you have news you would like me to include, or just let me know you read the column, send me an email or give me a call. My deadline for next week's edition is Friday at 10:00.

Until next time.
