School Donations

Bill Livers (Southwest Parke), Veronica Hill (Rockville) and Tina Wilson (Turkey Run) stopped by Rockville Public Library to pick up donated school supplies.  The supplies were donated to the library for needy children.  After the supplies arrived at their schools, administrators divided them among needy children.  It is a great reward when a child smiles and says thank you for the supplies!


A big thanks to all that donated!!!

Professor Steve definitely kept the attention of attendees at Rockville Public Library!  He taught the importance of focusing and making the correct choices and listening to teachers and coaches.  Of course, there was a lot of science going on while he was talking.  A leaf blower and a roll of toilet paper can be truly hilarious as the paper blows around the room!

Spring has sprung at Rockville Public Library.  It was such a beautiful outside on storytime day that kids went outside to enjoy the sunshine.  They listened to stories on the steps and planted blue and gold flowers to celebrate Indiana's Bicentennial.  Also, they learned that butterflies need  flowers to hover around to get their nectar.  A lot of butterflies are becoming scarce due to the shortage of food for them.
