AfterSchool Program on Winter Break

Our regular afterschool program is on hold for the next two weeks. The next session will be on January 10th, with more information to come closer to that date.

Our youth services librarian will be visiting Twin Rivers YMCA over winter break, so kids in that program won’t be entirely missing out.
