March Mania Week 01 List (FOR WEBSITE)


Jake Z. is the winner for the Mystery Book raffle!
His entry for “Rooster is Off to See the World” (to which he gave “all the hearts”) was the winning entry drawn on Tuesday, March 1.
The library wants to commend Jake for his strategy. Since he read so many books and entered a ballot for each it would have been almost statistically impossible for him not to win!
Well done, Jake, and enjoy the $25 Suzi Cake gift card!
Don’t eat it all at once! Congratulations!


Be Sure to Visit in February!
