At the Library for April 9th, 2019

Updated 2019/04/08



Katy Butler examines the final stage common to everyone in her latest book ‘The Art of Dying Well.’


Raj Haldar explains why the words like Knight, Gnat, and Aisle seemingly ignore the first letter when pronounced in his brightly illustrated picture book ‘P is for Pterodactyl.’

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 kings and queens! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

We also have a new JUST FOR TEENS section on our website, located here:
