The Shelby Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Argie Cooper Public Library, held a joint program for children on Wednesday, April 11 at the library. Gay Mixon, Native American Chairman of the local DAR, and Jessica Osborne, children's librarian at the Argie Cooper Library, worked together to present this entertaining program.

Osborne read from several books and had a slide show presentation. Mixon and other ladies, including attendees' moms, helped the children make a headdress to take home with them. The children listened to stories of the past and worked skillfully on their headdresses that they proudly wore at the end of the program.
