Believe it or not, the first day of school is quickly approaching. That, of course, means shopping for school supplies, trying to find the best deal in the ads for new clothes, and possibly updating the old phone. It also means school events will be up and running soon.

With so much going on at the school, it can be hard to keep it all straight, so you can be sure to get to the activity you’re wanting to see or in which you want to participate. With our hectic lives, it’s easy to not know when your student’s parent/teacher conferences are being held. Likewise, if you have a student taking part in volleyball or football, and you want to see them play, it helps if you know when the games are.

To make all this easier, Hardin Schools print out a calendar of events that are available for free at different locations around Hardin. One of those locations just happens to be the Big Horn County Library. We were given 200 calendars to hand out – first come, first serve.

In order to get one of the calendars you must come into the library and ask at the front counter. Please do not call and ask to have us put one aside for you, as we will not be doing this. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

On another note, it’s fair time this week in Big Horn County and we at the Big Horn County Library are getting right into the spirit of things with our ledge display. In addition to the county fair, the annual Crow Fair will be taking place later this month. As a matter of fact, this is the 100th anniversary of Crow Fair and we would like to give it special attention this month.

That being said, our ledge decorations will be dedicated to the Crow Fair. Many don’t realize that Crow Fair actually started out as an agricultural fair and gradually evolved into what it is today. Known as the “Teepee Capitol of the World,” Crow Fair is the highlight of the year for members of the Crow Tribe as well as others from around the world.

Be sure to come in and check out the display and right below the ledge you can read a history of Crow Fair. We at the Big Horn County Library would like to wish everyone a happy and safe fair season.
