All November Long!

There have been faint stirrings on the windowsill in the children’s room. We think the dinosaurs are waking up! Look for the mischief they get up to on our social media during the month of November!

More Resources!

Book Bundles

Need help choosing books for your child? Have a topic coming up in schooling that you’d like to have books to supplement but don’t know where to start? Let the Children’s Room staff help you out! We’ll pull four books and have them on hold for you at the library. Please give us at least one business day to get your bundle ready.
