The Washta Library recently celebrated National Library Week by hosting a fete that recognized the volunteers who put in time every week giving Librarian Ruby Wych a helping hand. The resident "bookies" hold down the front desk and man the daters, enabling the library to stay open every day. Those receiving a well deserved pat on the back were, front row, left to right, Phyllis Kabisch, Sandy Leonard, Virginia Williams. Back, Amanda Clark, Betty Zupp, Betsy Clark, Don Parrott, Sonja Driesen, Doris Eades. Volunteers Lucy Zupp and Tiffani Smith were not present for the photo. Photo by Ron Flewelling.
