No Story Time Feb. 10 or 17!

In anticipation of tomorrow’s snow, The Newtown Library Company has announced it will not open until NOON on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016.

Itsy Bitsy and Wiggleworms Story Times will not be held. We are also off next week! Our next Story Time will be 2/24.

Bored?  Looking for a fun Valentine craft? Try this…

You could make a beautiful picture, card, frame… possibilities are endless!

Watch him as he melts to the ground! Continue reading
