New library aide plans activities

 With another season of the Prairie County Library’s Little Owls Reading Program set to begin next week, newly hired library aide Kelly Ruddat is gearing up for what she anticipates to be another fun year for toddlers. The reading program, geared for children 2-years-old and older, will begin Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. 

The hour-long session involves children in reading stories, singing, dancing, crafts and more. The group is open to all children. Parents are welcome to stay, but it is not required. 
“I’m looking forward to working with the kids,” Ruddat shared of her new position.
A parent herself, Ruddat is married to local Trinity Lutheran Pastor David Ruddat. The couple has four children, ranging from six years to three months in age.
Other activities taking place at the library include a book club and scrapbooking group. 
The book club meets the first Monday of each month. Currently the club is reading “The Book Thief” by author Markus Zusak.
Those interested in participating are invited to contact the library for a copy of the book. 
Scrapbooking members  will begin meeting again in October. For more information on library activities or to offer ideas please contact Ruddat at the Prairie County Library at 635-5546 or email her at
