Second Graders visit the Library

The Nyquist Elementary second grade, along with their teachers Mrs. Exsted, Mrs. Perron and Mrs. Petty visited the Mille Lacs Lake Community Library on October 24th. To make the day doubly fun, the children visited the Isle Police Station which is also in the Isle City Center.

We were especially pleased to have the opportunity to share with the children all the joys and responsibilities that come with having a library card. I tried to impress upon them that the library is a place that everyone can go and everyone can find a book they like. I showed them some of the different kinds of books that are available. For the children that had filled out a form, they were able to pick up their library card.

We hope that the children will tell their parents about the library and that they will take the time to get to know the wonderful resources that the library has to offer. We gave each of the 37 children a bookmark and an hours card.
