Hayley Ross, age 10, of Spokane won the child’s Christmas basket sponsored by Friends of the Library (FOL). Hayley is homeschooled and is at the 5th grade level. Her mother, Mandie, said that the library is a great resource for finding information on subjects to study. Hayley enjoys riding her two horses, Spartan and Zimby. She reads the Pony Pals series and other stories about horses.

The next FOL general meeting will be in the library’s meeting room on March 15, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. A family membership is only $5 a year.
