Come by the library every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for weekly Friends of the Mt. Pleasant Library book sales. The Friends room is up on the 2nd floor across from the entrance to the Children's Room.
A story time experience for our youngest library users and their caregivers. These 20-30 minutes story times introduce books, songs, rhymes, tickles, and bounces developmentally appropriate for children from birth to when they start walking. Baby Lap Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading in a positive and fun atmosphere. This story time is designed so the baby will be in their caregiver’s lap and the grownup is actively involved in the program; it is recommended that each child have their own adult with them.
Join us in this beginning level class, which covers 100+ ASL vocabulary words and rules of grammar. Review what you know, learn new signs, and practice conversation. Although focus is on beginners, everyone is welcome to join the class, regardless of skill level.
Mondays from 7 - 8:30 p.m, February 27 - April 24, 2017 (No class will be held on April 17 in recognition of Emancipation Day)
