Visitors at Meade Public Library

IMG_5501Meade 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.

Summer Reading Final Program

The 2014 Summer Reading Program is coming to a close.  We’ve had a lot of fun with the families coming in to count their books, the programs, crafts and other activities.  It’s a busy time for us but very rewarding. Join us on Saturday afternoon (July 12) at 1:00 p.m. for our final Program.  Sarah May, the owner of Selah Music Acamemy–and a violin and piano teacher, will be presenting the program “The Science of Music.” Following the program, we will have the prize drawings and refreshments.  To qualify for the drawings, children must have completed their reading requirements, and they must be present to win.purchase Fluoxetine
