A Treasure Trove: Central Library

We love to head to the local library, especially on rainy days. They offer so much more than books. Family history research assistance, the amazing North Carolina Room, preschool films, story time, author readings, book clubs, Russian Conversation time and art! These colorful pieces really pop and my kids fell in love with them.

Thursdays are "Things to Do Thursdays" in the Children's Room of the Central Library from 4-5PM. "Come join us every Thursday for a fun way to chill out after school. Each week is something different with games, crafts, dance contests and more!" This Thursday's topic is "Wind."

This Thursday, March 10th, from 12-2pm, author Marva Edwards will be visiting Central Library 
for a discussion of her book Bound to Be Free and her inspiring victory over domestic violence.

Support your local library! They are a great resource for our communities. And note the library themed local Etsy on the left! Thank you for supporting local artisans.

This one is my favorite, though.
