Ready to have fun at home, with some help from your friendly library staff?  Register for a Parent & Toddler Time: At Home Edition play kit.  You can also choose to have a librarian select 2-3 books that fit this monthly theme to be checked out on the library card in the registration form. Each month features a new theme and activities that build fine and gross motor skills, explore colors, shapes, sound, and imaginative play.

Kits are limits.  Request one per household only, please.  To sign up starting two weeks before event, register online through our calendar OR call the library at 766-6340 x2.

Hooray! An art class all about the basics!  Join us as we are inspired by American art and architecture to learn the Elements of Art. We will cover line, shape, color, space, value, and texture. As we gain confidence in artistic skills, students will accumulate charts, vocabulary definitions, along with beautiful finished works to be archived in their own art journal portfolio.   Offered in conjunction with History for Homeschoolers, registration for both classes is not mandatory but encouraged, as they will complement each other.
