We continue our series on library databases this month with Legal Forms Online.  This is a great, quick resource for District residents that I often tell people about.  Are you writing a will?  Renting out property?  Popular forms for individuals include those for Power of Attorney and Wills and Estates.  There are leases as well as forms for Landlord/Tenant issues.  Do you need to change your maiden/married name or apply for a marriage license?  You can download and print these forms with just a few clicks.

Story Time

Published on Monday, March 18, 2013

lego farm picturePlease join children's librarian and early childhood educator Miss Christina for a fun, special, story time on March 27 at 10:45 a.m.  For this special Lego program, "Read! Build! Play!," we will listen to animal-themed stories, sing songs, and have time to build using legos.

We will spark children's creativity and imagination, develop fine motor skills, and socialize with other children.  Integrated singing, stories and playing also increases your child's physical, cognitive, and emotional development.

This program is best for children ages 2 to 6 accompanied by their parent or caregiver.  All play materials will be provided by the library.
