A group of kids from Krause Memorial Library’s summer program “KIDS ROCK” happened to be at library on Monday, June 17. “We were able to take advantage of the Egyptian Pyramid Dig presentation! Here they are sporting their garb made at the library!” said Jane Downs, Director Rockford Preschool and Child Care Services.
