Hanska Community Library Saturday Kids Klub: It appears that Saturday is not turning out to be the best day and/or time for this children’s activity. Please stop by the library to fill out a very brief survey to help make a decision as to the best day and time slot to have this activity. You can also watch for it in the library newsletter or do it on the library website at hanskamnlibrary.org. It should be on there by the week of June 10th!.

Please note: In June, however, Saturday Kids Klub will be on Saturday, June 15th it begins at 1:30 p.m. until about 3:00 pm. The children will be making jewelry this time and a card for Dad!

A sincere THANKS for the very nice sofa donated to the library by Steve and Darlene of Hanska Furniture. It is greatly appreciated and moms or dads can sit comfortably and read to their child. The sofa will be in the new addition when completed.
