COLUMN: B'ville Library Focus - Ready or not, we’re off into the future

— Maybe it’s the weather or maybe it’s the Mayans, but that was one of the fastest holiday seasons I can ever recall. The New Year started at a gallop and it looks like we are in for a fast and busy ride in the months ahead. So strap down your valuables and keep track of your calendars folks - we’re off to the future ready or not.

A timeless tradition

Baby signs are fun but Storytime is a basic ingredient in raising a book loving child, which is one of the basic ingredients of a well-educated adult. Make sure to give your offspring the reader’s advantage by signing up for one of our regular storytimes. Several sessions are already full but there are still slots in a number of classes for the winter/spring session of stories, fingerplays, songs and crafts. Story Time sessions meet once through March 29. Register by calling 635-5631 or stopping by the Children’s desk. Check under Children’s services on our webpage at bville.lib.ny.us for full information on dates and times.
