Santa visited the Broken Bow Library this past week much to the delight of the children, young and 'not so' young. We published several of the photos in this week's Chief, but the colors were so vibrant we wanted to share the photos in color as well.
To view the photos go to the 'View/Order Photos' tag toward the top of the page just under the menu bar, and then click on the Santa at the Library folder - enjoy. Santa was jolly and the children perfectly delightful.
