Shepherd Library has Poetry Night on April 12 from 6 PM - 8 PM and mark your calendars for their Movie In The Park night on May 7, Friday at 8 PM. This is a free event in the Gazebo Park next to the library. The movie season kicks off with 'The Sandlot'.  Director Terri McIntire, with Crystale and Victoria, have created a new brochure of all that is available there. I didn't know they can laminate items for the public, price depends on how large or small you need to laminate.
