The week of April 20th, 2015 was Money Smart Week nation-wide. Ontonagon Township Library got in on the fun with a special "Money Smart" session of our weekly preschool Story Time group. Each participant received a copy of the book Berenstain Bears' Dollars & Sense courtesy of the Michigan Credit Union League, and also got to paint their very own owl bank to help them start saving! Everyone had a hoot and dol-learned a thing or two about money. (Best of all, the library director was able to write a sentence featuring both a money pun and an owl pun.)


All in all (owl in owl?) it was another great success (suc-cents?) for OTL!

Terry Pratchett was born in April 1948, in Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire, England.   He attended High Wycombe Technical High School where he was a key member of the debating society and wrote stories for the school magazine.   Pratchett was not the best of students and credited his education more to the local library. His early interests included astronomy and he wanted to be an astronomer, but lacked the mathematical disposition to pursue it. He also had an interest in reading science fiction and attended science fiction conventions, but stopped when he got his first job a few years later.
