Hawk Talk

Trisha Nesbitt and Jaime Printy first met when they played AAU basketball in the summer of their junior year.
“I knew Jaime before we were teammates on AAU but I didn’t get to really know her until we played on the same team,” said Trisha. “Then we became really close, and then the next year was when we played against each other in the semifinals at state.”
Trisha’s team, Ames High School, knocked of Linn-Mar and Jaime in overtime.
They became teammates in the fall of 2009.

New sign in library’s future

Preliminary work has begun near the driveway entrance of the library in preparation for installation of an LED message sign.

The LED message will be used to announce library activities and events including holiday parties, book sales, Summer Reading Program events and pertinent city information as well.

Movie Clips

Please note that the library will be closing at 2 pm on Friday, July 20, and will be closed all day on Saturday, July 21, for Beef Days. So, if you want some movies for the weekend, plan accordingly.
