WOW!!!! Keep up the GREAT work! 

If you haven’t had a chance to see these amazing purple caps, please stop by the library. Individuals have worked very hard crafting these purple caps to help spread the word about the Period of Purple Crying. The caps will be on display until September 26th at 5:00pm.

We have yarn to share with those who want to make hats and directions as well. We also have crocheting groups every Tuesday from 11:00am-1:00pm and knitting groups every Friday from 10:30am-12:00pm. The campaign will end on September 26, 2014.

If you have questions about how to help,  please call 620-421-5920 or stop by the library.
