We are looking forward to our next session of Story Classes which will begin the week of January 26th. Please stop in on January 14, 15 or 16 to register by lottery system for Wee Read, Toddletime, Circletime or Preschool classes. There is also a new Tuesday evening book club called “Happily Never After” for kids in Kindergarten through Grade 2 which will register on those same dates. Our Love My Library drop in story class will resume on January 23rd and continue for 9 Fridays from 11-11:30. A new drop in class that we will be trying this term is an ABC’s and 123’s class for ages 3.5, 4 and 5 focused on concepts needed for kindergarten. These will be on Monday afternoons 4:45-5:15pm Jan 5 & 19, Feb. 9 & 23 and March 9 & 23. We can’t wait to share these our love of reading with you!
