Swisher County Library was honored to
be included in Happy Elementary School's
Texas History Day” activities on Friday.
April 15. Kindergarten-2nd grade came in
the morning and 3-5th grades attended in the
afternoon. Eight teachers and two parents
also came, for a total of 128. They were all so
attentive and polite—justs joy to have in the
Library! The Library has special displays of
Taxana books, fiction and non-fiction, and a
pretty bulletin board representing Texas he-
roes and events.
The Library also obtained a special film,
'The Star of the Republic” about Texas his-
tory for showing. The local Texas Highway
Dept, provided a "Don’t Mess With Texas”
bag (huge enough for books) for all the
children and teachers. Our thanks to Randal
James and Yvonne Nevins for getting these
out of the Lubbock office—the kids were
delighted! The Library staff also made a
booklet on Texas songs, facts, Indian lore,
trails, puzzles, word games, etc. to take home.
We all had a great time, and hope to have new
library patrons from these grades.
The Library again this year will sponsor
the Summer Reading Club to encourage
reading among children of our area in grades
K through 6. A "Read-To-Me" for ages 3 to
5 is also included. The theme for 1994 is
"Familiar Faces—Far Away Places." The
reading club will run from June 1 through
July 8. More about this later.
Lots of new books have been arriving.
Many are children and junior books, ordered
for the Summer Reading activities, includ-
ing the 20 new books on the Tex as Bluebonnet
Book list and other award books with more
New arrivals for adults are in also. The
fiction titles are: Three books which are now
current movies are Flusche, Shadow lands.
