Here at the Children's Library, storytime isn't just about books. We follow each of our Tales for Twos and Preschool Storytimes with a craft in our craft room. Crafting not only encourages creativity, but it also develops early literacy skills that will help children learn to read when they get older.
Looking for that extra special unique handmade/crafted gift? Stop by the Blair-Caldwell Library and check out a wide vary of items inspired by the principles of Kwanzaa by local artists, artisans and merchants.
