For fire prevention week the New Town city library read Little Critter – Going to the Firehouse By Mercer Mayer and made firehouse puppies as a craft. They also got to visit with a real Fireman. We were very fortunate enough to have our local fire department come in during story hour. Fireman Thelen got to demonstrate how his fireman suit works and show the children and their parents what the fire engine looks like inside. A very huge heart felt thank you from the New Town City Library and staff to the New Town Fire Department and Fireman Thelen for helping make this possible! Thank You New Town Fire Department for all You do and helping us and our community to stay safe!
