COTTONWOOD — The open house at Prairie Community Library was enjoyed. While Christmas carols played in the background, there were popcorn, cookies and fudge for snacks to go with a warm drink. Buster, the library mascot, donned his Santa cap and stole the show by reading his favorite story, “How to Train Humans to do Tricks.” Afterwards, all helped to remove any movable furniture so the carpet could be cleaned during the closure of the library during the holidays.
The Library board wishes to extend a Christmas wish of “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” to all the patrons, and invite anyone who is interested to join in 2015. We will be open for business on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015. See you then.

Summit Academy’s Nativity Play was everything the public expected and was attended by a huge crowd. It started with the story of a young couple who did not have any money but wanted to buy each other Christmas gifts. It ended up with her selling her hair to buy a gold chain for his watch, and him selling his watch for some pretty combs for her hair. Every child in the school had a part as a shepherd, angel, starlight dancer or other similar parts. Decklan Spencer, son of Danielle and David Spencer, was baby Jesus. He did a great job and was very cute. Luke Wassmuth did a good job as the cowboy poet.
