Alternating Fridays (9/27, 10/11, 10/25, 11/8, 11/22) 1:00-2:00 pm – Ms. Neena

This program welcomes homeschoolers of all ages to create an inclusive space for discussion and social learning.
Activities based around family’s needs are implemented, freeing caregivers up to come together and talk.

This season, the focus will be a "book club" where the kids share their favorite books, review new
books, and help the library decide what to purchase.
