Important Library News for Miss Brown's Class

LIBRARY NEWS:  It’s 5th grade quilt time!  We are nearly finished with the 5th grade quilts and still need a quilter volunteer for Miss Brown’s class.  Would a mom or grandma please volunteer to piece together the squares made by Miss Brown’s class and then quilt the crib-size quilt for that class?  This can be done by machine or hand, whichever is easiest, and there is absolutely NO rush.   The 5th grade quilts hang in the library until their junior year when the quilts are auctioned at the Fall Festival to help fund their Junior-Senior prom.  You may stop by the library to view previous years’ quilts any time.  Please consider volunteering!  Miss Brown’s class needs you!
