December Programs!

Winter is coming!  Personally, I love winter!  And I love being outdoors in winter!  Walks through town are a little sweeter and a hike in the woods becomes magical.  However there are those days when the weather is simply against you and you can’t bring yourself to spend hours out in the slushy drizzle but don’t want to veg on the couch all day either.  Don’t worry!  We have tons of activities for all ages and interests here at the library!   The Calendar is here!  Throw on your fuzzy socks and come hang out with us 🙂

❤ Ms. Robyn
