(Morrisville, NY – Dec. 2012) Due to our Library Programmer’s immediate resignation to be a full time mom, we have cancelled several programs in January and February. Please check our website for the up to date list of our current programming. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Come learn Tai Chi Chuan with Morrisville State College Professor William S. Snyder on Monday Jan. 7 at 6:30pm. He will be doing this class for free every Monday so teens and adults; this is your chance to learn this and have fun. If you cannot make that day, he will be here again on Monday Jan. 14.
Kiddies Korner will meet again on Tuesday Jan. 8 at 9:30am to hear the spectacular story by Jan Brett, The Mitten and make one to take home. If you can’t make that day, join us Jan. 15 to hear stories about snowballs and snowmen.
We will be showing the movie, Ice Age: Continental Drift on Friday Jan. 11 at 6:00pm. Bring the family in for popcorn and this enlightening tale.
