Don't forget our Little Libraries!

Please visit 1 or all 3 to find a book for each person in the whole family! They have been recently restocked with fresh titles and will be checked every month to make sure they have a variety of books in them. However, the BEST way to ensure there will be a variety of good books for everyone is to BRING a quality book with you to swap out or donate. You do not have to bring a book to take a book and you don't have to return the book you took! (Extra books will be added each month by Jill Ferguson, Family Engagement Coordinator using donated books from previous Book Swaps.)
