Hello from the McCulloch Children's Room

"All you need is love.
But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
Charles Schultz

Stop in the Kids Room and make a special valentine for Major Bill White, a 104-year-old US Marine Corps veteran who served in WWII and received a Purple Heart. If you love furry friends, give to our "Donate Love" campaign benefitting the Riverside RISPCA shelter (donation boxes located in the library, Pet Valu and Shaws). Decorate cookies, hear Snow Queen enchanted stories and cuddle with Dave Marchetti's critters. The end of the month brings two author visits and a brand new Minecraft Club. See you soon!
