Sand Creek Chatter – 4-17-2013

Library news:  April 14-21 is National Library Week.  It has been a very long winter and the library hasn’t had too many visitors come and check out some items and support the library in Sand Creek.  During National Library Week the library will have treats and a book giveaway. If you haven’t been in the building for awhile, you are in for a wonderful surprise when you step into the lobby enroute to the library.
