On Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 4 p.m., we will be hosting the first ever Library Olympics in the Children's Room on the second floor.

Events will include a figure skating relay, a “bobsled” race, Olympic trivia and more. Prizes will be awarded to all those who participate. Come to compete in the events and to cheer on your friends! This program is recommended for kids ages 6-12. Hope to see you there!
