August brings many family-oriented events at the Cass District Library.
The Main Library is having Math Scoops, an ice cream math club families can join. Each person will receive a packet of math activities appropriate for their age or grade level to complete at their leisure. All packets must be returned to the Main Library by Aug. 20 to be graded. Participants that receive 80 percent or better on their packet will be eligible to attend an ice cream party later in August. The party will have games, food and ice cream.
