Wednesday, April 9 the third of three “Reading Is Fun” (RIF) programs will be held at the library at 6:30 p.m. The Friends of the Library are sponsoring Curtis Mork, the Lego Guy for an evening of learning about Lego’s. Children will all have the opportunity to create with Lego’s as well as select their own book. If children have missed any of the other RIF programs they will be able to choose books for those missed programs. Plan to attend!
