 strenght finder 1.jpg As we graduate high school and begin to look for careers and colleges,
we want to put our best foot forward and show the world we are here
to make a difference. Strengths Finder 2.0 helps us do that by helping
us identify and develop our strengths. Discovering your talents and gifts
is key to finding out what what you're good at doing what you love.
This book helps us do just that.

Love Your Library Month

Love your library month is all about giving back and appreciating all of the services and resources our library provides everyday. We celebrated and made sure our library was in tip-top shape by straightening books on library shelves and putting them back in order. It felt great to help out our library staff.
