May is National Pet Month and National Bike Month. We will be celebrating both of these with the crafts we are making during the next children’s drop-in craft program on Saturday 5/18 from 10:30am-11:15am. We will be making license plates for bikes as well as mounting pictures of cute animals on construction paper. Feel free to join us!

The library has books on caring for pets in the 636 to 639 adult nonfiction sections, the j636 to j639 children’s nonfiction sections, and the beginning nonfiction section. You can also select from our children’s and adult books about bikes.
