​Mother Goose Lapsit

This is one of our additional programs here at the library. Come and join us for stories, songs and playtime! This program is for the ages zero to 24 months, it is a wonderful way to introduce children to books. Lapsit is held at 10:30 a.m. Mondays.

Comic Book Club

If your child likes comic books, then Comic Book Club is the place to be.  Bring a comic to trade with and enjoy crafts, games, raffles, and expert speakers from the world of Comic Books.  This event is held in conjunction with Annette Tubbs and the Comic Book Stop and Trade who supply comic books to those who would like to participate in the comic book exchange but are unable to do so.  December’s session of Comic Book Club will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15th.  Ages 17 and under welcome and sign-up is not required.
