An evening story time where pajamas are encouraged but not required. These 30-40 minute evening programs are designed to delight children of all ages. Filled with stories and activities that promote and develop language skills and imagination, these programs encourage children to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning.
Winter is here and the library is a warm place for an afternoon of board games and snacks. International Games Day was a hit, so we're bringing back new games and dusting off the classics. A war gaming expert will be on hand to teach and play a historical board game.
Best for ages 8 to 100 - it's an intergenerational activity!
