 Library Outreach:  Cindy Grant reading "I Wish I Had Duck Feet" at the Dr. Seuss themed Children's Fair at the St. Joseph Expo Center April 29th, 2008.  Over 2000 children and adults came to the fair.  The library shared Cat-In-the-Hat bookmarks and displayed plans for the new library.  Cindy, Library Director, Corey Kudrna Wildlife Specialist, and Charles Marshall, Park Ranger gave 10 minute presentations to kids through out the day.  They know this book by heart now and the baby Ducklings were a big hit with the kids.
