Basketball, soccer, tennis, football, squash, baseball, track and field, lacrosse, field hockey, badminton.... so many sports, so little time.

While it's true that a library isn't the place to run around, that's exactly what we're going to do for Family Fun Time: Sporty Saturday on Saturday, August 9, 2014, at 2 p.m. in the Children's Room at Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial Library.



We'll read a few books and sing some songs about sports, and then we'll get active, playing some games and expending some energy - and perhaps there may even be a few Olympic medals handed out.
