Our solar eclipse party was a huge success. We had 50 people show up and participate. Everyone was given ISO certified glasses to view the eclipse. Cookies, snacks and drinks were provided. In addition to our local Oneida people, we had participants come in from several surrounding areas. It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The Library Board of Trustees and staff want to thank everyone who came and participated; Brandy Walters of our Friends of the Library group for being the driving force behind making this happen and making it a success; and the City of Oneida for loaning and delivering picnic tables so we had plenty of seating.

Our Summer Reading Program was a big hit again this year. All the participants received the satisfaction of meeting their reading goals and the fun of getting prizes for doing so. Our End of Summer Reading Celebration was a sensation with the kids and the parents. The kids played in a large bounce house with a climbing wall and a slide. For both the parents and the kids there were games such as a bean bag toss, a hoop throw, board games, and skill games like walking with a raw egg in a spoon. Everyone enjoyed the snacks, fruit drinks, water, snow cones, popcorn, cookies, and fruit. Each Reading Program participant received a goodie bag with a Certificate of Completion, prizes and coupons. They each were given the opportunity to choose as many prizes as they wanted from the treasure chest and to choose the books they wanted from a wide selection of childrens books. We would like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors and helpers: The George and Marilee Miller Foundation R.O.W.V.A. High School Sr. High Activity Fund R.O.W.V.A. Public Schools Foundation Ameren McDonalds Pizza Hut The Friends of the Greig Memorial Library and all the others who volunteered and helped out. We look forward to seeing you all next year.

Another interesting seminar from Ken at Ameren. This time he explained how electricity and gas get to our houses and gave a graphic illustration of how dangerous natural gas is by creating a small explosion. As always a quality and informative presentation.
