It’s a…

Castle! We may still be working on our Stick Together, but someone figured out what it is. Congratulations to Linda Farmer for correctly identifying the castle!

People have been trying to guess the picture since the early stages and we had a lot of fun answers. We drew five winners from our guess bucket and here’s what they thought our picture might be:

  • Cooper: Something with fish
  • Isabell: A pool!
  • Lane: Bowling party
  • Lydia: Farm
  • Violet: Beach photo

Thank you to the Pipestone Area Friends of the Library for providing a gift card for Linda and craft kits for our young winners!
