LIBRARY CORNER Hurrah I 50 books new to our library from the State Traveling Library will be available this year to the summer reading club. Don't forget that Wednesday, June 1st, 2nd through 6th grade pupils may come in and get started on their reading booklets. You will also want to pick out books so you can report on them and start your way into space. You need not start on' Wednesday, but any library day you may come in to report or start your space booklet. Remember, each report must be written in your booklet before you are given credit.

It is the story about a man who, as a teenager, was violent, lawbreaking and a young thug. He admits this fact. After being committed to San Quenton, he reforms with the help of former warden, Clinton Duffy. The second book "Keep Calm If You Can," by Louise Hillary, is a story about a mother and father, their children, and of their 60-day journey traveling over the United States, Canada, Alaska and back to their native home of New Zealand. The entire book is filled with amusing adventures. Bluebirds Meet The regular meeting of the Burt Bluebirds 4-H club was held May J4 at the home of Becky Cranston.
