Join us for a fun-filled day at the library on Saturday, November 20th! Starting off, we have our annual cookie and card decorating program from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. Each child/teen will get to decorate two cookies and two cards. One card will be given to a senior at a local rest home. All supplies will be provided for the craft and cookies.

Next, at 2 pm, we will have a children’s program called The Magic Hat! It’s a little bit of magic and a little bit of science and a whole lot of fun!

No registration for either program – please stop by and join us!
