We even got to practice our folding and observation skills by making origami cheetahs! What a great afternoon!
Hello, library friends! We hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend!
Our July calendar of events is full of fun. You can still sign-up for the Summer Reading Program and earn prizes for all the books you read. We're hosting Family Storytime on Mondays at 10am. Our special programs this month are Mary Tooley: Art in a Suitcase on July 6th at 1:30pm, a Visit from Heckrodt on July 12th at 1:30pm and a Harry Potter Party on July 15 at 6pm. It's going to be great!

Families started in the entry way, jumped to the Children's Room, hopped upstairs and shot down the elevator in our spacious meeting rooms on the lower level.
