What's Happening @ the Library: Aug. 26-31

Our Summer Library Program is drawing to an end this week, with a few crafts and end-of-summer-parties still happening.

We will now be transitioning back to our regular library programming, adding back our after-school programs and numerous story times for babies, toddlers, and children, and gearing up for our fall lineup of speakers, music performances and other offerings.
