From staff reports

Celebrating the U.S. Constitution is in full swing this week.

Local members of the Daughters of the American Revolution are sponsoring activities to honor Constitution Week, which runs through Saturday. Constitution Day was Sunday.

During the week, a display of materials about the Constitution will be at the Austin Public Library, 323 Fourth Ave. N.E.

From 11 a.m. until about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the Daughters of the American Revolution plan to have an area at the library for people to ask questions about the Constitution as well as get free materials, voting information and a patriotic memento.

Any child or adult also can get a list of 15 questions about the Constitution as part of a contest. The answers need to be returned to the library's reference desk.

Each entry will be checked as to whether it has a majority of questions answered correctly. The entries will be put into a prize jar; five names will be drawn at the end of the week, with each winner getting five $1 bills.


Each qualifying entrant will receive a coupon for free ice cream at Sterling Main Street. Coupons will be mailed to participants at the end of the week.
