She is doing a great job!
Our new concrete courtyard is finished!
We appreciate the Western Kansas Community Foundation and TCEC’s Operation Round Up for the grants given for this renovation! We now have a table and chairs for you to enjoy the cool fall breeze.
Thank you to a couple of volunteers who secured it to the concrete!

What is TumbleBookLibrary?
TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. TBL also includes games and non-fiction videos.
