Julie Chase, the children’s librarian, read a Fancy Nancy book to the children while they enjoyed Fancy cupcakes. The children also decorated crowns and discussed the Fancy Nancy books. The library will host a boys program on July 21 with Dino Dig for Dudes. Attendees are encouraged to dress as paleontologists as the students learn about fossils and dig for some fossils.
