SUMMER READING FUN. Wow ee!
Summer Fun kicked off with a Thursday morning Storytime about Frogs! Frog Trouble by Sandra Boynton was featured, with it's accompanying CD of music performed by current Country Stars, such as Dwight Yoakum and Allison Krause. See the books we discussed below. Everyone had a chance to draw and color a frog before we handed out Sticker charts for all the books they read this summer. We listened to the music and maybe did a jig or two...Watch out for that current problem here...Frog Trouble!!! ;) And take a drive South of Love's one evening, with the car windows down, and when you roll past those ponds, slow down to hear all the frog talk! See you next Thursday for more crazy fun.
The afternoon kids at the library had time to try the instructions for making an Origami Frog. They folded frogs from plain printer paper, then colored them, and we had a jumping competition. Then we discovered that each frog was different, and so the kids named their 'frog-species'. We recommend you google 'make an origami frog' on the internet for easy instructions on folding your own.
Our Friend and Mentor, Dr. Virgil McWilliams, veterinarian, geologist, and book guide of all things fit to read has left us. Alas, Doc, Mr. Mac, we will miss you! One day we read to the toddler crowd a book titled "Tops and Bottoms" about a wily rabbit that offered to grow a garden on shares with Bear....However Bear was going to get an education about which vegetables grow on the TOPS of the plants, and what crops grow on the Bottoms...
Enter Mr. Mac, who just happened to drop by to show us what a spade dipped into his garden turned up....Earthy, fresh, beautiful Carrots that he and Mrs. Margaret had grown....Oh, my, the children inhaled the beautiful garden dirt, and each claimed a lovely carrot to take home for their lunch. And then there was the year we were talking rocks in summer reading...Enter Mr. Mac, laden with samples, and offerings of various kinds for each of us to keep...Always sharing, telling, educating us...We are missing you, my friend!

Who is behind the door of "ROOM 205"?
"The patient lay motionless, eyes closed, unable to move, and in such agony that he prayed for death. His prayer was not anwered." Seems God had other plans for the patient in Room 205. Get your copy of this biographical book of one of Hooker, Oklahoma's own.
Dr. Harold D. Davidson roamed this area on his pony, threatening 'mock' stick ups with his toy guns, and then like other youths here, loved to play basketball, ride his bike, and was in FFA. His parents ran the local newspaper. When life dealt him an illness named Guillan Barre' lesser folks might have checked out right there.
