Dear Cocoa Bean,

Thank you for your support of library programs for children and for Booker, the book bus!  Eileen, Marvin, Bri and Makayla you came to almost all Books & Stars for the last 8 years (at least)!  A portion of their sales of the yummy Hawiian ice were donated to the library and Booker!  We're going to miss our buddies from the Cocoa Bean and wish them all the best in the new chapter in their lives.

Most sincerely, Kathy Ness and the rest of the library staff.
