Please join us for Preschool Story Time next Tuesday, February 9, at 10:30 AM in the library meeting room as we celebrate the start of Chinese New Year with stories about monkeys.  Why  monkeys? you may ask.  Well, this new year is the Year of the Monkey, so picture book stories about monkeys is appropriate.  Along with the stories will be songs and a craft.  See you then and Happy Reading!

You can share your knowledge, too!  [Image © 2016 Vital Imagery Ltd.]
