Eldorado Public Library Director Felicia Murray, dressed as Snow White, gave the children a Disney-themed presentation with pictures of Disney World, a questions and answer session about what is at Disney; each child made their own Mickey Mouse ears. Norris City's local Snow White and Belle were also in attendance. We wrapped it up with pizza, popcorn and snacks. We had a great program this year with kids reading and wonderful volunteers who helped us tremendously!
