Kurt won the Country showdown competition for Florida's Treasure Coast in 2014 and was named FSU’s country artist of the year.

Never-Ending Storybook Project @ Brackett Library

Due to popular demand we have added three new characters to our Never Ending Storybook. In addition to Gorilla Ice, Kaia, and Gidget, we now have Lily, McGrath, and Maxwell.

Elementary aged children can participate by checking out one of the six Character Bags. Each bag includes one stuffed character and profile along with a copy of the story and the materials needed to create your own page for the storybook.

Children are asked to continue the story in one or two paragraphs, take a photo or draw a picture of their character and return their addition to the book, as well as the rest of the packet to the Brackett Library within two weeks.

For more information contact Hollie McDougall at 772-226-3080.
