Cub Scouts Visit the Library

April 3rd, 2009

On March 3, we were pleased to host the second year Webelos Scouts from AuSable Valley’s Pack 54.  The boys were working on their Communicator Activity Badge.  They had to use our computers to exchange e-mail, look up websites that interested them,  and write a letter to a friend.  They also learned how books are catalogued so that they are easy to find.
