Fifteen furry hamsters competed in the library's first ever Hamster Ball Races on Tuesday.  There was Digger, Gizmo, Goldie, Honey, Joselyn, Mr. Curious, Rookie, Rosie, Sally, Scabbers, Squeeky, Streak, Stripey, Wishing Star, and Zeke.  What a great event!  Everyone had fun—competitors and spectators alike.  Congratulations to our three top winners!
