While the library building is closed, our virtual programming will continue with Take & Make activity bags. We have increased the goodies inside of the Take & Make bags to include more educational material. This weekly newsletter is filled with materials to add to your educational toolbox, as well as incorporating fun!
In addition, Family Saturday STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) activity bags are geared toward school-aged learners.
Pickup for both the Kids Take & Make bags and the STEAM Saturday bags are on Sundays from 3:00-5:00, on a first come first serve basis, while supplies last.
Books are available from the library through contactless pickup, and eBooks are available through our digital library resources.
