In these economic times when we all are feeling the crunch, we still want to give during this time of year. Besides the ever present needs for volunteers in our community, there are our friends and loved ones that we want to remember with gifts in special ways. Let's get 'old fashioned'. Go find the scissors, glue, needle and thread, all the almost finished craft projects, the sparkles and bangles and create something personal for each one on your list.

Family Storytime: Para Los Ninos!

It's time again for our monthly family workshop/storytime: Para Los Ninos! It will be held during our normal toddler storytime this Thursday at 10:40 am.  The theme is "Raise a Reader." If you are curious as to what activities we will do, they can be viewed here , on page 15. 

The Para Los Ninos workshops are structured in such a way as to allow parents and children plenty of time after the storytime to participate in and rotate through several activity stations.

See you there!


Para Los Ninos

Please join us this Saturday at noon for this month's Para Los Ninos family program! We will be reading several stories, followed by time for parents to participate in activities with their children. The theme is "Raise a Reader," and we hope you can make it!


Allow you child to volunteer and they will broaden their humanitarian sensitivity and be more balanced. They will grow into generous givers and strong leaders. Help find ways your child can volunteer in your neighborhood or the community. Greg Mortenson, author of "Three Cups of Tea", "Stones into Schools" and "Listen to the Wind", encourages children to look for needs around them and then find a way to volunteer their time and gifts to help make a difference in the world.
