Make a splash this September!

 September is Library Card Signup Month.  If your child already has a card, just bring it to one of our Toddler or Preschool storytimes and your child will get a duck cutout (Toddlers) or a frog cutout  (Preschoolers) to put their name on and put on the bulletin board in the Children's Activity Space.
