Come to the library for any of these programs and be ready to be entertained and informed. There’s something for everyone from book discussions, to playtimes, to magic shows! Reading is the perfect pastime during these cold days, so come and browse the shelves or let us help you find the perfect book. Read to your little ones to build their vocabulary and to improve their preliteracy skills, and let them catch you reading. The love and enjoyment of reading is one of the best gifts you can pass on!
