New Toys for the Children’s Department
The Vicksburg District Library is in need of new toys for our children’s area and to use during our Story Time. Please take a look at our Wish List and see if there is something you are able and willing to purchase. We are looking for new toys only. If you have any questions stop by the library and talk with Stephanie. Thank you in advance!!!
Website Showcase: South County News
The South County News is “a new venture in community journalism”, according to their website. Many of you are familiar with this wonderful local resource that reports both in print and online on local news and events, local sports, activities, student achievements, and much more. The South County News began in 2012 as a collaboration between Bill Adams and Sue Moore, and is now produced by editor Sue Moore and a dedicated group of volunteers. This month marks Volume 29, and the website states “the many volunteers who are producing the South County News are grateful for the donations people have sent to help us stay alive. The positive comments we have received, fuel our commitment to bringing the communities a quality product along with our advertisers have become the backbone of the publication.” Visit South County News to keep informed about all the happenings in Vicksburg, Schoolcraft, and the surrounding areas, and stop in to the library to pick up a free print copy (it has coupons!).
If you need help with the site, stop on in and we’ll be happy to help.
