Celebrate Pollinator Week

Children and their families are invited to a special program presented by John Mims from Wild Birds Unlimited.

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and learn what you can do to protect them. During this program, learn about the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. Afterwards, families will have an opportunity to create a craft. This program will take the place of the Twilight Tales storytime; we will resume our regular schedule the following week.  

Free Family Fun @ the Library!

If you've previously attended one of our storytimes, you will notice that Ms Rucker's program is very reflective of our goals related to emotional, social, and cognitive growth.
