Hi, kids! I'm Draco, the Library Dragon. I like visiting the Batesville Memorial Public Library to play games and puzzles, listen to stories, have a puppet show, and pick out great books to take home and read!

Sometimes, I like to play fun games on the computer in the library's Kids Area.  When I'm not at the library, I know there's lots of interesting things for me to do on this library Kids' Page.

While we're here on the computer, what would you like to do?


Read or listen to books and do puzzles.
