The Youth Services Department
In honoring Black History Month, we’ll have very worthwhile books available in the Children’s Department. The wide variety on display will highlight biographies, history, novels, poetry and music. Check them out!
The books to celebrate Valentine’s Day will be ready to share in the library or to check out to enjoy at home. And of course we will have our annual exhibit of stories that touch the heart.
It’s still winter so curl up with a good book and a teddy bear. We can then read teddy bear stories together.
Join us on Saturday afternoons for board games and puzzles. We’ll also have coloring sheets, word searches, and crossword puzzles on the topics of Black History, Valentine’s Day, and teddy bears!
