PJ Story Time rescheduled to Dec. 10

Holiday PJ Story Time has been rescheduled due to the storm to Tue. December 10th at 6:30 pm. This is a lovely way to get the littles excited (as if they need to be made MORE excited) about the holiday season. Get them into their PJs so that they can fall asleep on the way home and you can simply pop them into bed. We often have special youth readers along with Miss Sue to read to the littles and the kids seem to really enjoy our youth readers. If your child would like to read, please see Miss Sue and she will be happy to make this happen.
