******************************************************************************

     May is the month most people start to prepare for the summer.  We plan our gardens, plan our vacations, etc.  The Huron County Community Library is also making their plans for the summer.  Preparations have begun at all of our locations for this year’s Summer Reading Program.  “Oceans of Possibilities” is the theme this year and the program will run from June 13 to July 23.  

     Although planning for Summer Reading, all of our libraries have plenty of things planned for everyone to do for the month of May.

     Come see Miss Mitzi downtown during Willard’s May 7 Spring Fest from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  There will be “Touch-A-Truck”, Magic Nate, Pickleball, a Bike Rodeo, and more.  Miss Mitzi will have a fun craft, too.  Then be sure to stop by the Annex and checkout “The Friends of the Library” Book Sale.  

     On May 19 at 4:30 p.m. join Miss Char in the Community Room for a fun afternoon and paint your own miniature birdhouse!  While our paint dries make your own bird feeder using pine cones, Crisco, and birdseed.
