Norman Ng Magic!

Tue, 07/03/2018 - 2:47pm -- Miss Carla

Norman is known for bringing fresh energy to his shows. He views his show as a conversation with the audience rather than a performance for them. He gets the audience to react in ways they never throught they could. Swinging and smashing stuff, he makes hundreds of people suspend their belief with every show. You will laugh, scream and freak out!

Show date is Wednesday, July 18 at 1:30 p.m. - All ages are welcome.

Online registration begins July 6th.

It's Storytime!

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 5:13pm -- Miss Luci

Spring is just around the corner, and that means Storytime is commencing a fun new season! Did you know that these classes serve all youngsters from birth through age 6? For drop-in sessions, geared to children 3 years of age and older, no registration is needed...just come on by and join us on Wednesday afternoons or Thursday mornings. Programs for infants and toddlers do, however, require on-line registration on our library's website, due to high demand and limited resources. Sign-ups will be opening up on March 12 at 9:00am.
