Horsing Around With Hank

We are going to have a special visitor at the library on Saturday September 18th! Come to the library and horse around with Hank that day, learn about his special story from his owner Tammi Regan and participate in fun horse themed activities!  September is library card sign up month and I think Hank might get his very own library card that day! I wonder what Hank’s favorite book is?  I bet we will find out on September 18th.  Make plans to attend this fun family event. Call 234-4881 if you have questions.
