Shop more parties!

There are still parties with openings, so it's not too late if you didn't buy spots at the auction. If you are interested in purchasing them, go to the auction website  and click on the "Shop Items" tab, and then click "view all" to see what is available. The parties will be open until Tuesday, March 7.

All items not picked up at the Vox have been delivered to the Prairie front office. Please be timely in picking up your winnings. Ellen and Seretha have everything stored behind their desks.

Thank you again for helping to make the auction a success!

Upcoming author event

March 7- we will be hosting Sean Connolly for 3-6 grade students. Sean will be promoting a new science activity book and hopefully demonstrating some science magic for students. Don't miss out on your chance to purchase autographed copies of this new book.

What a wonderful gift idea! Contact librarian Lori O'Neal with questions about this event.
