Centerville held a 2-day Kids Library Camp on June 23rd and 25th. The registration was full in three days but the inquiries never stopped, even when the camp was already in session.

They are good students; they are liked by their classmates ; and they have all the stuff a girl could ever want. But, about a year ago, their mother died. Since their mother’s death, their father has spent most of his waking hours working and the girls have been on their own. Their father feels that his girls need a woman in their lives. The fun begins when Auntie arrives. Suddenly the girls have to go to bed at a reasonable hour and they no longer get everything they desire. The girls decide Auntie must go! They decide to try and marry her off. But Auntie is always one step ahead of the girls…
