At the Library for February 9th, 2016
‘Alone on the Wall’ is Alex Honnold’s life story–from dropping out of school in his teens to becoming the fastest free climber in the world.
In the first of a multi-authored series, Vicki Grant tells the story an orphan girl who discovers the mysterious circumstances surrounding her birth in ‘Small Bones.’
Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Valentines!
