Join us at the Northwest One branch as we make special gifts for the special ladies in our lives. Mother’s Day is coming up, so make sure you have something special to give your Mother. Be sure to bring a picture of you and your mom or just you, so you can use it for the craft. We can make copies of pictures, or print them off if you would like.

A story time experience for our youngest library users and their caregivers. These 20-30 minute story times introduce books, songs, rhymes, tickles and bounces developmentally appropriate for children ages birth to when they start walking. Baby Lap Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading in a positive and fun atmosphere. This story time is designed so the baby will be in their caregiver’s lap and the grownup is actively involved in the program; it is recommended that each child have their own adult with them.
