Though the snow makes it hard to think spring thoughts, April is here, and with it, our annual National Library Week Celebration!  We have a week's worth of great activities covering a range of interests, from our Young Author's Reception for children whose published books will be added to our collection, to those interested in the inner-workings of the criminal mind at our author talk with Katherine Ramsland.  There's even something for the outdoorsy types - our first ever Run for Reading 5K Trail Run/Walk!  Join us for one or all of the great activities we have coming your way!
