FIRST LINE FRIDAY: THE MAN IN THE PICTURE
We are bringing back the ever popular First Line Friday as previously seen on Tumblr!

MISS JAMIE'S MUSIC ON THE FARM
Miss Jamie and her puppet friends from the farm will take the audience on a magical barnyard adventure in a sing-along, dance-along show that is a guaranteed boot-stompin', hollerin' good time! The performance will include well-known farm songs as well as original songs like "Happy Chickens Lay Yummy Eggs" and "Keepin' it Pesticide Free."
Come to the library on October 5th at 10:30 AM to see the show!
