BUS TRIP

Wabasha caves and gangster tour bus trip Publication1-1

Do you like bus trips? How about a free bus trip? Yes, the library is taking another bus trip on Wednesday, September 7. We will be leaving from the Graceville Public Library at 6:15 A.M. We will take the bus to St. Paul and take a step back in time as we tour the Wabasha Street Caves (handicapped accessible) and then take a Gangster tour around the City of St. Pau. Seating is limited to Big Stone County residents first. You will need to pack a sack lunch. We will stop at Harriet Island to eat our lunches between the two tours. Stop by the library to sign up and to sign your bus waiver. We will be taken a motorcoach by Riley’s – 54 passenger. This trip is being sponsored by the MN Legacy program. Call 320-748-7332 to reserve your spot.

Nurses are Heroes

We had a nice small group of kids for the Nurses are Heroes presentation today. Thank you to nurse Amanda for coming and sharing some great stories with the kids and to the 4-H group for coming and doing crafts and snacks with the kids. I would have like to have had more pictures to share with you but my battery died. I did get one of the kids making boo-boo bandages with wafers, twizzlers, icing and all kinds of goodies. They must of had fun because all I heard was giggling and laughing in the back corner of the library.
