Attached are some photos from the Bluffton Public Library Fun Day on June 4.  It was a huge success.

Every Summer Program kick off event brings several hundred, and we think this year was the largest crowd we've seen for a Kick Off.

Among popular events were the involvement for the Touch-a-Truck and llamas as­­ we had Hard Rock Llama Co., a Bluffton Exempted School District school bus and Bobcat, the Bluffton EMS, fire truck, police vehicles, and someone even brought a motorcycle. 

Register soon for "The Healing Power of Nature", presented by Naturalist Beth Theisen of Johnny Appleseed Metro Parks

Naturalist Beth Theisen of Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Parks will present The Healing Power of Nature on June 12 at 6 p.m. This program is intended for adults, and registration is required by June 7. (Please call or stop by the library to register.) Scientists are finding that a connection to the natural world is crucial for our health and well-being; join Theisen as she discusses this "Healing Power of Nature”.
