Prairie Community Library will be closed on Saturday, April 4, for the Easter weekend. That way everyone can attend the Easter egg hunts.
For all you Karen Kingsbury fans, Prairie Community Library has received two new books. One book is “Gideon’s Gift” which is the touching story of a little girl who crosses paths with a homeless man. The other book is “Maggie’s Miracles” which is a story of a boy holding on to a precious dream, a disillusioned woman, a man looking for meaning - and a decades-old promise only Heaven can fill. Come in and check them out.
