National Library Week in April and Children’s Book Week in November were observed by displays of new books.

Mrs. Kenneth Lovett, Art teacher in the Elementary schools, had charge of the art displays on the peg board and in the display cases. The collections are varied and interesting. Descriptions of the exhibits were printed in Hampton Union. We are grateful to all those who have loaned articles for these exhibits.

We thank the Garden Club for the several items in observance of the Holiday Season, the Madonna, the flower arrangements and the lovely wreath for the door. The prettily decorated tree was supplied by the Library Staff.

Several books from the Bookmobile Extension service have been at the library.
