Heres How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column, and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes.

Happy Birthday to Us was the main theme of the last Summer Preschool Storytime at the Maple Lake Library on August 22, finishing the Summer of Holidays storytimes. A total of 34 children and eight adults listened to silly birthday stories and then the children were each acknowledged as they stood up for the month of their birthday. One of the songs had them standing when their age was sung and they were given that number to put on their own birthday crown. The crowns were decorated with stickers from previous storytimes as we reviewed our summer fun together and finished with birthday stickers. After the final storytime picture in front of the library, the children sat down to enjoy birthday cupcakes together. Children who attended the birthday party were: Hazel Byman, Scarlett Byman, Violet Byman, Kenlyn Marsicek, Landon Marsicek, Gavin LaRose, Abby Forsman, Isabelle Forsman, Larson Melgaard, Isabelle Melgaard, Elijah Dorse, Sophia Norberg, Allie Ertel, Carter Ertel, Aubrey Jude,

I would personally like to thank all the parents, grandparents and daycare providers who took time out of their Thursdays to bring the children to our storytime at the library this summer. We had wonderful attendance each week. I had a lot of fun and I hope all of you did, too. Thanks for letting me be part of your childs summer fun. Hopefully, I will see you at the library during the school year, enjoying our many books and media. And, a special thanks to Gabe and the Maple Lake Messenger for putting our picture and article in each week. I know the children really enjoyed seeing it.
