June 26, 2017 - The Fannie Brown Booth Library's next Summer Reading event for the younger group (ages 4-8) will be a program by local beekeepers, Mike and Linda Bordelon. They will be bringing an observation hive which should be very interesting. This program will be Thursday, June 29th, at 10:30 a.m.
The Tweens (ages 9-13) will have their last LEGO group at 2:00 p.m., June 29th, with the theme being STAR WARS.
