Drop by the Kozak Community Room from tomorrow afternoon, and Miss Beth and her volunteers will help you create Valentines and Valentine boxes. As usual, snacks will be served.
We were so honored to host the Jolley third graders as they stopped in for a visit this morning. In their “One Team, One Dream” goal of reading a million minutes during the school year, they are traveling to different reading spots around our community.
Now that’s a goal we can get behind!

K-5th grade can get a preview of this year’s Prairie Bud and Prairie Pasque Nominees. South Dakota Children’s Book Awards are divided into Prairie Bud, K-2nd grades, and Prairie Pasque, 3-5th grades. Come join the fun, as we will watch book trailers, discuss the best books, have popcorn, and more!
The annual South Dakota Children’s Book Awards nominations provide a list of books that is fitting for both instructional and recreational reading. Connections can be made between the Common Core State Standards for ELA and Literacy across all content areas as well as reading for enjoyment. Students are encouraged to read at least five books from the list of nominees and vote for their favorite book from those titles. The books receiving the most votes from the students win the awards. A committee of educators and librarians select the books nominated for the awards. Each child can vote only once. Deadline for voting is March 31, 2015. Winners will be announced in April during National Library Week.
Friday, July 18th at 2 pm.
Stop by tomorrow for the final day of our Dakota Players visit. The kids have been working hard with the Dakota Players all week, learning lots of fun stuff about creating characters, designing for theater, singing, dancing, etc. They’ll be putting on a simple show & tell performance for parents and the public. Come cheer them on!
This week-long residency has been generously supported by the South Dakota Arts Council, South Dakotans for the Arts, and the Board of Trustees of the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library.

Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the every day, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under park benches, in the forest, and probably a short walk from where you are right now. The adventure begins by searching for cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. There are more than 2 million geocaches waiting to be found throughout the world, in more than 180 countries…..for more information see the website: www.geocaching.com
