Helen Keller’s birthday is June 27th, but that didn’t stop the C-FC 4H from celebrating a little early, with Activities that used all 5 senses! Homemade slushies are cool on a sunny day.
The Library’s 4H Summer Program features Presentations that will keep the kids thinking and learning!
The kids asked alot of questions, but their curiosity didn’t phase Officer Logan Olson. He had answers and tips for How Kids can Create a Safer and a Better Life in their community. He advised the kids that 911 is only for emergencies. They should be honest and to help the sheriff’s department when they can. Olson described some of the tough things about his job, but some of the good parts too. The hours can be long and sometimes he’s called in after he’s asleep. He has made friends within his department, and works with many different people, especially during an emergency.
Cleaning up in the Kitchen just got better for 3 lucky Library folks! Faye from Fountain City has been busy buying dish towels and creating the cloths to match. Faye is really like a library Fairy, making little presents, then leaving them at the Library for others to enjoy. What a nice surprise to pick out a little gift that has been left anonymously! Faye really loves doing handwork, and sharing her creations with others in the community. Pictured here are 3 sets that Faye created. In cooler months, Faye knits children’s scarves to give to Charity.

What do these films have in common?
Saving Private Ryan
The Alma Public Library owns them, they were directed by Steven Spielberg, and the music for these movies, and many, many more was written by composer John Williams!
With 49 Academy Award nominations, “Williams holds the record for the most Oscar nominations of any living person.” “Note by note, through chord and chorus, his genius for marrying music with movies has elavated the art form to symphonic levels and inspired generations of audiences to be enriched by the magic of movies.” (Sir Howard Stringer, Chair, American Film Institute Board of Trustees)
The American Film Institute will be presenting Williams with its 44th Life Achievement Award on June 9, 2016.
