The Kids Corner Bookmobile

In late 2020 we lost a member of the Kids Corner family - librarian Joe Hilton. For over thirty years, Joe visited with us monthly to share his love of reading with generations of kids (and adults!). In celebration of Joe's life and legacy, here are just a few of the hundreds of books Joe suggested we 'check out' and enjoy! (refresh for more selections)


Each Tuesday on Kids Corner Kathy and the kids nominate people in history that we feel should be recognized for their efforts. The only guideline is that it needs to be a 'public figure' and not a friend or family member. Other than that, we encourage kids to think about people in history that inspired them, or perhaps intrigued them. Maybe they learned about them in school or from a TV show or movie. Each week Kathy and the kids nominate more people to add to our Kids Corner Wall of Fame! Visit the ever-growing list of people here!
