Learn About Mehndi and Henna

Are you interested in a body art that isn't as permanent as a traditional tattoo?  If so, then Mehndi might be for you.  On Thursday, July 19th from 10:30am to 12:30pm, we will have a special guest here to discuss the traditions surrounding the practice of Mehndi as well as the art itself.  She will also be applying Henna to those interested.  Any participating individuals will need to sign a permission slip prior to the demonstration.  We hope to see you there!

Summer Reading is for Babies, Too!

alise flemingMeet Alise, the youngest participant to complete the Summer Reading program at the Northwest Branch Library.  This seven-month-old is a regular at Baby Time and is a fan of Dr. Seuss books read to her by her mom, Shaneeca.  Her older sister is currently reading her way to completion of Summer Reading.  All children who read 10 books or log 500 minutes of reading get to pick out a paperback book from our special selections and she chose The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.  Congratulations, Alise!
