Snow place like the library!

It’s January, and while our temperatures seem to range anywhere from below freezing to all the Snowman!way up to the balmy seventies, we always have something cool going on at the library! This Thursday our Preschool Picassos are going to be making their very own snowmen. Luckily for these guys, they are guaranteed to not melt and they will be a lot of fun to create.

We Play the Wii

This past Saturday, we had our very first Adult Wii Gaming Program.Wii Bowling Though the weather was gloomy with the fog, those who came out had a great time playing Wii bowling, tennis, and golf! With the Wii, the weather outside can be frightful, but the Wii is so delightful! We will be having more Adult Wii Gaming sessions coming up in January.
