A Royal Wedding!

It’s been a few years, but today we finally returned to the Bedford Public Library!

Rumor had it the Queen Mother might even show up for the ceremony.

But Librarian Sue cut a deal with a local church!

My ant and grasshopper story time was saved!

Mount Ayr kids really love United States [...]
