Greatest Of All (story)Times!

On Saturday, June 25, the Steeleville Area Public Library held a goat story hour. Teri Rice of Rent-A-Kid brought five pygmy goats to the library and they told us the story of the 5 Pygmy Goats Gruff.

Then children were able to feed, pet, and hold the goats. The goats even balanced on the kids' backs! A total of 19 children attended.
