Historic mural on display
The mural, which depicts the area’s historic past, was formerly hanging on the exterior wall of the antique store in our community, and is now proudly hanging on the library’s back interior wall greeting our patrons as they enter. It was trimmed down, just inches off, to perfectly fit into its new space. Visitors reflect on what the mural means to them and their families and appreciate that it will now be preserved at their library and enjoyed by many.

LEFT - Our preschool story time worked on a spider craft, which followed a Halloween themed story on spiders, where kids learned that spiders have eight legs and up to eight eyes also! This story time is geared for the preschool age, but all ages are welcome to participate! Friday Preschool story time is followed by Friday Kids' Game/Craft Day.
CENTER - The free Fall Garden Program, presented by Green Things Nursery of Orofino, was well attended and enjoyed! Mike and Joan of Green Things gave garden tips on fall prep, trimming and planting and highlighted fall garden perennials and herbs. The presentation included safe applications to address pest and disease issues and also highlighted deer resistant plants. Perennials and herbs were available for purchase also. Future garden programs are planned and will be announced at a later date.
RIGHT- Head Start students and teachers came down for a story time at the Craigmont Community Library for their Wednesday morning story time in October. This was their first visit this year to the library and they walked the short walk from their building to the library. The Head Start story times are on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. at the school.
