It's an IDD (Instructional Development Day) for teachers so we are having an IDD at the library, too. We are calling it "I Did (It) Day!" We will have stations set up throughout the library with fun activities for children (and parents) of all ages. Students can earn an "IDD Certificate" which they can show their teacher! There will be a scavenger hunt, arts and crafts, puzzles, and games. Play "Stump the Librarian" and take part in the Shelving Contest. Stop by the Gordon Cooper Branch Library between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm on Monday, May 13 to play.
