"We will be using this grant to enhance our Fall programming, replenish arts and crafts supplies and purchase equipment. Since residents have asked for more programs geared toward toddlers and older teens, we’ve included Communi-Play for Babies and Toddlers as well as S.A.T. Prep for High School Juniors and Seniors. Other upcoming programs supported by this grant include: Youth Zumba for ages 6-13 years old, Paint Parties (which are paint on canvas instruction programs) for grades 2-7, our annual Quiet Costume Party just in time for Halloween, and an exciting theater performance by the Bright Star Children’s Touring Theater group of their production Holidays Around the World on December 16 at 6 pm."  Kassundra Miller- Library Director
