School days, school days

Dear old golden rule days

Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tun of a hickory stick

You were my queen in calico

I was your bashful barefoot beau

And you wrote on my slate

"I love you, so"

When we were a couple of kids.

To be an information center for the citizens of Wilbur and
the surrounding area and all who pass through the area.

To be a source of educational and entertainment materials in various forms.

To foster a love of reading

To provide resources for persons of all ages, varied viewpoints,
and a broad range of interests and understandings.


"Every Hero Has a Story"



Sign up at the library on Friday, June 5, or any day in June when the library is opened.

Crazy 8 activities every Wednesday June 17 through July 29, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Children must have completed Kindergarten through grade 6 to join the reading program.  Those who've completed Kindergarten must show the librarian they can read.

The child must read at least 5 books or more from the library, including at least one book about  a hero.  Books should be at the child's level. Books from home may also be read and counted, but there must be 5 library books.

Bring the filled in log to the library, so the librarian can track the books read on the chart and give the child a sticker.

In order to receive prizes and attend the ending party, the child must read at least five library books (1 about a hero) and turn the completed log in to the library by Saturday, August 1, at 5 p.m.  There will be prizes for the top readers. 

Made possible with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services
