  • Polar Party Library Night

    Posted by Erika McCoy at 1/22/2014 8:00:00 AM
    Ready to get out of the house and have some fun? 
    Love all this cold weather and looking for some winter stories to warm your heart? 

    Join us for a Polar Party Library Night!  Thursday, January 23, 6:30 – 8 pm in the Ashlawn Library!  We’ll be featuring stories and crafts that celebrate polar animals! 

    Have some extra travel-sized toiletries just gathering dust?  Or new, clean, adult socks that you don’t need?  We'll be collecting these items at Library Night and for the next week for A-SPAN. These supplies can help our neighbors experiencing homelessness!  Bring to Library Night and drop them in the Helping Hands bin! 

    See you at Library Night!
