January is National Soup Month!

January Storytimes

January is one of the coldest months of the year, but that doesn't mean you have to be stuck at home watching T.V. All of the children's programs this month encourage lots of participation in physical activity. Stories read at regular storytimes will all be interactive, inviting you to get up and dance, stretch, shake and be silly. So put on your tennis shoes and comfortable clothes and join us for some fun and energetic play at the library.
