William Allen White Awards – 9 youth from the Osborne Elementary, grades 4 – 6 were selected to attend the William Allen White Awards in Emporia. This ceremony honors authors from a selected reading list for Kansas children in grades 3-8. The youth read books from the lists and turned in short book reports to the library to qualify to attend.
Library Updates – The library is happy to show off the latest addition to the library. An art table, art books and supplies were given to the library in memory of Bobi Jarrett. The kids love sitting and drawing and coloring. The library is also fortunate to get to have some of Bobi’s artwork on display.
