 "I always go to the Kiddie Crafts with my son and am very excited that you have reading programs available at times we can attend.  We love your library (and he loves the cafe), so we are looking forward to spending more time there." - Cindy  


Thanks for your kind words Cindy!  We have planned a great variety of programming for our youth, tweens, and teens as they head back to school this fall.  Check out our Program Calendar for details.
