September 21-27th is BANNED BOOKS WEEK. Stop by the library for fun activities and information about banned books.
Children’s Story Times
The year-long theme for our story times is “Did you know?” We will explore and discover what a valuable information resource we have at our public library! Our first 8-week session of story times is based on this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The creation of a thousand trees is in one acorn,” and will spearhead our discussion of trees, apples, leaves and acorns.
