Block out some time in the Children's Department in December!

       If you're looking to get away from crowded malls this holiday season, join us in the Children's Department where your young ones can enjoy some good old-fashioned fun playing with blocks.  If blocks don't appeal to your child, we have other activity tables that children will find fun and challenging.  Librarian, Elizabeth Hunt, works hard each month to find or create a variety of activities that will interest children as well as their adults.   For December, we have a blocks table, a spelling table, and a puzzle table.  Additionally, we have an ever-popular puppet stage with a collection of hand puppets that budding puppeteers will enjoy.
