On Saturday, February 29 take a leap into fun! Join us for this family fun day that will celebrate a day that only happens once every four years! We will have games, activities, and crafts from 10:00am to noon.
Ever wonder about having backyard chickens? Like the idea of having farm fresh eggs from your own flock? Are they really a lot of work? Saturday, March 7 at 10:00am, local resident Brian Landers will be giving a presentation on raising backyard chickens and will cover all the issues of local laws, chicken selection, coops and pens, feeding and care, predator protection, and more. You will also get the chance to meet and pet Thelma and Shirley, two of Brian's hens, and see how friendly they really are. Kids are encouraged to attend!

Your child will love this Teddy Bear or Loveable stuffed animal program during Valentine's Day week, February 11-15. We want to invite your child's favorite stuffed animal to spend the night at the library. Bring your child and their special stuffed animal to one of our weekly children's programs. Then leave their favorite friend with us overnight for their own exciting time. Pick up their friend later in the week and receive a memory booklet of their favoirte friend's overnight at the library. Families will also be able to view pictures of your special stuffed animal's adventures at https://www.dellslibrary.org/teddy-bear-valentine-sleepover-2020 or on our library Facebook page.
