‘Wonders’ targets upcoming solar eclipse

Print Article

While at the Fair on Thursday, I was amazed at the thorough representation of our community and the effort that was put into decorating the booths. This year’s theme; “Remembering Our Roots,” lends itself to some very interesting displays. You should make time to go check out the fair today if you haven’t already.

We opted for an indoor booth this year, which gave us the opportunity to showcase the history of the library in Bonner County.

Our librarians were in hog heaven as they got to do what they love best — research.

They were giddy with excitement as they uncovered long forgotten tales of the library’s past.

Discover all of those stories for yourself by visiting our booth during the fair. Pick up a free book for yourself and the kiddos and get selfied with our photo frame and props.

Pick up a copy of our quick facts sheet for details about Your Library Transformation.
