January in the Children’s Department
2016!!  Let’s appreciate a fresh start.  New reads!  New interests!  The weather outside may be frightful, so come on in to read about snow and snowmen.

Curl up with a good book. Let’s make pillows to take home. On Saturday afternoon,
January 16, at 2:00 p.m., we’ll have stories, hot chocolate, and you can make your own pillow.

January is a good time to get serious about being fit.  Take a look at our display of books about exercise, healthy food, and positive attitudes.  Then check out a few to review at home.  The next step will be to put these good ideas to work.  Happy New Year!
