February 8-14 is Read Off Your Fines Week in the Children's Room.
Kids in grades K - 5th grade can read off their fines from February 8-14 in the Children's Room. Come in & stop at the Children's Info Desk to register to read off fines on kid's cards (sorry grownups!). For every solid 15 minutes of reading you do here in the Children's Room, we'll erase $3.00 of fines. This applies to fines on kid's cards only (no lost or damaged item fees). If you have questions, call the Children's Desk at 967-3670.
Tuesday Story Time with Miss Pippi is back for February and March! During our first week of stories we talked about penguins. We learned that there are ten different kinds of penguins and we got to practice our counting skills as we counting penguins jumping into the water. We also read about a penguin that befriended a pinecone.
