Jeannette Andrews helps her daughter, Claire, 5, search for books May 4 at the Paris Public Library, while her son, Rory, 9, peeks around the corner of the stacks. Claire has a reputation for choosing books on particular themes. One week she hired a librarian to help her find small books that would fit in her purse. On this visit, Claire looks for books with mermaids, fairies, princesses or delicious food on the cover. “I like beautiful books,” says Claire. Meanwhile, Rory goes on a “Star Wars” scavenger hunt. Rory is a big fan of the Library Treasure Hunts and completed the Easter Hunt and the ‘Harry Potter’ Hunt earlier this year. Andrée Kehn/Sun Journal

Students at Edward Little High School in Auburn participate in an organized 10-minute strike at noon on May 5 to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s potential repeal of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that ruled the Constitution of the United States protects a woman’s freedom to choose to have an abortion without undue government restriction. Principal Scott Annear released a statement that said, in part, “The student leader of the group worked with the school administration to create a safe situation for everyone who participated. There were about 80 to 100 who participated. … The students were respectful … and the business of the school ran in a typical fashion. Andrée Kehn/Sun Journal
