We Love our Library!

During the month of February, everyone is invited to share their thoughts about the library by making a Valentine heart to place on the bulletin board in the Children's Room. 

Once you've made your heart just take it to the Children's Reference desk.  Then we can hang it up and you will receive a Valentine sticker to take home!
