  • Library marks 50 years with a blast

    There was no librarian ssshhh-ing children because it was a party.

    As music pulsed from loudspeakers and teens boogied to the beat, younger kids begged for snow cones or screamed with delight as they descended down giant inflatable slides.

    “It’s awesome!” Jaylin Crowe said, laughing as he hurled baseballs at an inflatable backstop while his buddy waited his turn.

    In a nearby booth, Devin Miller, 12, smirked as Gennifer Daugherty held a mirror to show him the flaming baseball she had painted on his cheek.
