Dear Wonderful Patrons, It’s almost officially summer, and the summer reading program starts next month! Join me for Story Time on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-11am. Listen to a story, sing some songs, enjoy some felt board fun, and participate in a craft. There will be a theme each month. The theme for May is spring/flowers. Try a challenge or free build during Lego Club on Sunday afternoons. All ages are welcome. Lego Club is from 1-3pm but you may arrive and leave at your leisure within this time frame. Feel free to join one or more Lego Clubs as your schedule allows. If you have thought about writing your memoir, join Lorraine Lindstedt at the monthly memoir writing workshop via Zoom from 6:30-8:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month.
