Vote, vote, vote, like a baby... Vogon?

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED! The MLK Sci-Fi and Fantasy Book Club is looking for a new name! Something shorter and less clunky... something that invokes enchanted quests and the mysterious depths of space... or at least something that looks good on a T-shirt.  

Music Time Every Other Friday

The next program is coming up on January 29 at 10 a.m.

Sing, play, dance and learn. That’s our motto for this program.  Children of all ages will have the opportunity to play musical instruments, sing along with popular songs, dance to their favorite music, and learn the alphabet and how to count. This program is all about rhythm and speech stimuli that allow children to enjoy music, memorize songs and maybe become little musicians. Every other Friday the children will enjoy a musical petting zoo. Come and enjoy the music!
