Sulphur Springs Public Library Announces Summer Reading Program 2018

Who remembers these sayings?…A Spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down…choose your friends wisely…Be prepared for anything…carefully consider your words…be polite and keep your cool.  These are words of wisdom from Mary Poppins!  Sulphur Springs Public Library teaming up with Shining Star Productions proudly announces Fun with Mary Poppins Summer Reading Program 2018.
