Our librarians are sharing new programs every week! Visit our Story Time, Kids Time, and Tween Time pages for more details. Grown-ups, please subscribe to the Library YouTube channel to view videos prepared by our children's librarians. Remember to also visit our events calendar for programs for every age group.
Almost as fun as reading books is sharing thoughts about them with others in a book club. Once a month we'll feature a new book to talk about, hosted online by SAPL children's librarians. Read the book(s) or just come to find out about them.
Please register in advance for any or all of the book clubs! You'll receive email with the Zoom link after you register.
We hope to read and chat with you soon!
