"Who/What do you love?" Storytime

Image of hearts.

Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays
Beginning February 10th through 27th
4:00 p.m.

"Sweet Tooth" loved sweets, "Harold" loved purple crayon, "Mosquitos" love buzzing in people's ears, "Johnny Appleseed" loved nature's fruits, "Sojourner Truth" loved freedom, and "Martin Luther King" loved peace and justice. Who or what do you love? Let's enjoy stories about people, characters, and things we care about.

The Center is located on the 3rd floor of the Lay Park Community Center. This Resource Center was established with SPLOST 2000 funds and is staffed by the Athens-Clarke County Library.
