4-H WORKSHOP — Each month the Obion County Public Library and the University of Tennessee Obion County 4-H Program team up and provide workshops for children grades K-4. These workshops provide students with vital life skills such as leadership, positive communication, building relationships, achieving goals, responsibility, independence and citizenship. During the September workshop, youth used library totes to create a fun way to carry around their belongings. Participants had the opportunity to construct a family tree on the totes, complete with apples and leaves. These designs were created using the library’s Ellison Die Collection. The next workshop will be held Oct. 20. Pre-registration is required and anyone interested may do so by contacting children’s librarian Jenny Virgin at 885-7000. Participants included (from, from left) Abigail Brewer, Emily Brown, Reece Chandler, Thorpe Mitchell, Amelia Kingrey, Anthony Brewer, Gracyn Callicott, Elex Carter, Bertie Jenkins, Mimi Jenkins, Kaigan Davis, Ella Virgin, (middle) Jacob Virgin, Will King, Trey Mitchell, Dakota Powers, Emily King, Anna Bright, Maddie Hogan, Zackary Narr, Jessica Narr, Emmalee Foster, Matthew Hooks, (back) 4-H Honor Club members Logan Stephens, Peyton Lyons, Samantha Davis, Will Bright and Shelly Pate.
