Come celebrate Father's Day with your special Dad or Grandpa on Thursday, June 13 from 7:00-7:45pm. We will share some great "Dad" stories together, make a craft and enjoy some donuts. Designed for children ages 3-5. Take advantage of this opportunity to share together!
Children's Books on CD (formerly shelved in aisle #22) are now shelved with the Children's fiction books (aisles #15, #16, #17, #18). This will make it easier for patrons to find print books that are also available on CD so that they can follow along. It will also help kids to realize just how many wonderful, popular titles we have on CD.
It looks great thanks to a lot of work from our pages. Check it out!
