Meade Public Library had some fun visitors on Tuesday morning – Ronnie Robinson and his daughter, Anne-Sophie, from Denmark. After reading about places in the United States for many years, they decided to come here and are making their way across the western half of the country. They started out in Chicago, Illinois, and will end up in San Francisco, California. After spending a night at Meade State Lake, they will be going to the Dalton Gang Hideout and then up to Holcomb, Kansas, to see where In Cold Blood by Truman Capote took place.
Each of the following winners had to complete their program requirements in order to be eligible for the drawings held at the final program on July 12. Congratulations to everyone!
Winners of the “Guessing Jar” contest. There were 141 items in the jar.
Simeon Reimer guessed 136 items.
Timothy Sims guessed 123 items.
Each winner received the jar as well as the items in the jar.
