Clinton Fire Department Visits the Library!

Everyone wanted to know where the fire was at the library this morning.  Everything was great, because the Clinton Fire Department came to the library to do a program on fire safety.

The kids learned about what to do in a fire, how to call 911, and what to do with matches if they find them.

The highlight for most of them was getting to climb on the newest fire truck in the Clinton FPD.

And everyone LOVED getting to shoot the fire hose!

Officer Archie Hodge comes to the Quisenberry

Officer Archie Hodge came to the Quisenberry Library this morning to teach kids about gun safety and about abstaining from drugs and alcohol.

He told all the kids if they ever find a gun to “stop, don’t touch, and tell an adult.”  When it comes to drugs and alcohol, they talked about ways to avoid them, and how it is good to stand up for the right reasons.

Even the animals like the library!

As soon as the weather started warming up, we started getting lots of visitors at the library.  I thought everyone might enjoy the pictures.  If you are at the library and get a good picture of an animal, please send it in! I am working on a project for the kids department.
