On the first Wednesday of every month, Miss Angela offers a Baby Sensory Play Time at the Library.  The fun starts at 10am as babies and their caregivers can visit over 20 play stations.

Bring out your inner artist!  Paint a “glow in the dark,”  “out of this world” rock at our Rock Painting Station this summer.  Adults can stop in after noon, Monday through Friday to create their rocks.  Receive tickets to win great prizes by painting rocks, hiding rocks in the community, and finding rocks and bringing them back to the library.  Over 18, please!
