Two of Stanley’s master gardeners, Mary Domaskin and Brenda Jorgenson of the Mountrail County Garden Club, held a fun planting activity at the Stanley Public Library for students in grades K-6 on Tuesday, May 14. They aided the students through the process of planting marigold seeds in a small pot. They then showed the students how a planted seed would look once it came up and had several colors of marigolds in their final blooming stage. The students took their planted seeds home, along with a blooming marigold they repotted.
The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
During the month of April, the Stanley Public Library held a Reading for Rewards contest for students in grades 7-12. The students checked out books, read and returned them for an entry into the contest. The winner for April was Devon Anthony, who read a book titled “Plague.” Devon won a $25 VISA gift card sponsored by Braddock Insurance. Congratulations to Devon and to all the students who read a book to enter the contest!
The Stanley Public Library recently celebrated National Library Week with a LEGO building contest. Entrants built a character or scene from a book they read.
