SUMMERTIME AT THE LIBRARY














It was a busy June here in the children's department and it looks to be an even busier July! Besides storytimes for the little ones and activity clubs for the school age children we had our 39th annual Pet Show. Here are some pictures from the Pet Show.









And as you know, we can't get enough of our animals here at the Pleasant Hills Library! So on Tuesday, June 29th we invited Kathy, Ashley and Demi from the National Aviary to come visit us! Boy did they bring in the crowd! Ok, it was actually Demi, the penguin, who was getting all the attention, but we couldn't have done it without Kathy and Ashley! Thanks, guys!
