Springing Alive with the Arts

father reading with sonWith the Boneyard Arts Festival this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to share pictures of all of the fun we've had at our programs this winter/spring.  From music concerts to dance lessons, and parties with princesses and wolves, we've had a great time reading, building, singing and dancing

What to Do When Your Whole World Crumbles...

“If I were a publisher, I would immediately initiate a series of books for kids who have to cope with the death of their mother or father” (151-52).

Winter Reading Program

It is a great time of year to cuddle up with some good books! Join the Winter Reading Program by tracking your minutes and filling out a square of a form for each minute read. It can be library books, books from home, even books friends loan you! Once the form is filled, it reveals a picture and you can turn it in to select a free book to keep! Pick up the form from the Children's Question Desk and return it there as well, when you are done. The program runs from now until March 21, 2014. Stop by today for the form and get reading!
