No attempt was made to report on Monday, April 27, regarding the budget work session meeting by the Cobre School Board, as it was not a formal meeting.

50,000th Book Mailed
The Imagination Library's "Dream" is Becoming Reality
The Imagination Library of Grant County just sent its 50,000th book to one of the pre-school children in Grant County.
