Literacy Day At The Library
The class of Pre-K a.m. and Pre-K p.m. along with three
classes of Kindergarten children came to help celebrate Literacy
Day at the library. They learned how the library has fun
and educational programs on the computers, got to play with some
puppets, and looked at the books.
