Youth Services – October

It’s time for apples, pumpkins, and all the beautiful colors of autumn.  Take a look at all the wonderful books on display.  Wander about the open space in the children’s department.  Grab a book, look out the huge windows, and catch your breath. We want to encourage families to spend time at the library to share stories and conversation.  We will also read with the youngsters in our “SHARE THE STORY” area. (And then we can color and play games.)
