Story Hour at the Children's Garden

Alice Troyke

Story Hour at the Kimberling Area Library is special for those who get to attend

First Photo: Master Gardener Alice Troyke volunteers her Saturday morning at the Kimberling Area Library to read to kids.  The kids got to hear a story about 5 mice and then went outside to play in the Children's Garden.  These Daffodils were planted by kids two years ago.  Cookies, Flowers, playing on the slide, and reading books at the Kimberling Area Library:  A great Saturday for all.
