SPRING EVENT '18
This year's Spring Event came through without a hitch from 'Mother Nature'. It was a very long-awaited, sunny spring day, and only one week after a notable blizzard. This year featured beautiful local art from area carpenters, painters, knitters, and quilters. Art lessons were also offered, which is a versatile option for sharing one's talent as well as helping to teach creativity, confidence, and focus.
Baked goods are always a big hit at the Spring Event's General Store. This year we featured cotton candy, which was a huge success. If you want to increase sales, tempt the tummy!

Carver County's Summer Reading Program runs from June 1 through August 12, Register your kids and teens (birth through 18) at your local library or at carverlib.org. Once the program starts, that's where you will keep track of the books you read. Each library has a schedule of fun of programs
and performances for kids and teens throughout the summer. All programs are free, but some may require registration.
But, why read?
We've all heard that reading is good for us, but how so? There are lots of reasons! Here are just a few:
1. Reading increases our vocabulary.
2. The more we read, the better we become.
3. Reading helps kids develop a sense of independence. Once they learn how to read words on their own, they no longer need to rely on help.
4. It increases safety. Many warnings around us are in written form.
5. It helps us make sense of the world around us, from labels to directions,.
6. It helps kids to better succeed in school.
7. It enhances our imaginations.
8. It entertains us!
9. It improves our grammar.
10. It improves our writing skills.
