“We’re having a wonderful time,” said Emily Garland, children’s librarian for Mason County District Library. “We’re celebrating with paczkis, crafts and games.

“The Ludington and Scottville libraries are glad to have so many come to our parties and celebrate reading month, as well as the other events going on in March,” she said.
