Virtual Library Program Schedule

Second Saturdays @ 10:30 Second Saturday Stories

Our original children’s class was so popular, we added one class each month on the second Saturday! Join Ms. Kim for a story, songs, and a craft!

First Chapter @ 2:30 the second Thursday of the month.

In this monthly program, Director, Jennifer Johnson-Spence reads the first chapter from a book. The goal is to introduce different authors and genres to patrons. This class is directed towards adult patrons.

Craft Live @ 2:30 the third Thursday of the month.

This monthly program demostrates an inexpensive craft that you can do at home. Supplies can be found either in your home or cheaply from local stores. This program is geared towards adult patrons.
