INTERESTING LIBRARY CLUB PROGRAM The Mount Pulaski Library Club met Tuesday afternoon, April 4, in the library building club room. i Mrs. Clarence Bowers presided at !the business meeting, at which time it was voted to make a con- tribution to the Cancer Socety. A new flag had been purchas- ed, and was in use at this meet- ing. The hostess committee with Mrs. Frank Talmage as chairman, provided a very interesting pro- gram. Mrs. John West gave a most informative talk on child- ren's books, showing that she had made an intensive study of the likes and dislikes of the readers from the toddler stage to the high school group. Mrs. West recommended bed- time reading to even the very young child, for it creates in them a love of books, and is an incen- tive to learn to read for them- selves. She recommended several books for gifts suitable to various ages. The library has these books on their shelves ready for circulation. Miss Florence Wynd, librarian, gave an interesting report on an increase in circulation of books which reached an all-time high the past year. Ms. Dean Schultz provided two vocal solos, "April Showers" and "Will You Remember," with Mrs. Ray O. Zumstein at the piano. These numbers fitted in with the spring theme the committee had created. The tea cakes were decor- ated with violets and were serv- ed with tea and coffee. Spring flowers were shown a- bout the room, giving rise to the thought that Spring has arrived. Besides Mrs. Talmage, Mrs. Leigh W. Lucas, Mrs. Russell Shull and Miss Dorothy Shull, formed the committee.
