The History of Women's Suffrage

"The injustice involved in denying woman the suffrage is not confined to the disenfranchised sex alone, but extends to the nation as well, in that it is deprived of the excellent service which woman might render."

Winter Party Fun

In January, we had a Winter Party in the Children's Room! We started the party with an icebreaker game (pun intended). During the game, kids used snowflake puzzles to find a person with a matching piece. There were fun questions written on the back of the snowflakes that kids used to get to know their partner and introduce him/her to the rest of the group. 

Namaste: Kids Yoga at Southwest Library

 Join us on Saturdays at 1 p.m. in the children's room for a free kids' yoga class for ages 8 to 12.  This class is made possible through the library's partnership with Yoga Activist, a volunteer organization which helps teachers share their yoga practice in their neighborhoods and communities.
