Caroline Library

Caroline Library is busy this week!

October 8, 2018

Good Morning,

The libraries are closed today for Columbus day. Did you know Columbus Day is a national holiday in many countries of the Americas and elsewhere which officially celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1492. In Virginia we also celebrate two legal holidays on the day, Columbus Day and Yorktown Victory Day, which honors the final victory at the Siege of Yorktown in the Revolutionary War.

On Tuesday, October 9th we are offering Teaching the Art of Cursive at the Dawn Library at 7 pm. This crash course will equip you with tips on how to teach your child cursive. Free cursive handouts will be available all month long at the Dawn Library.

Also on Tuesday, October 9th we invite you to bring your children to the Ladysmith Library from 4:30-5:30 to Experiment with Science. This will be a fun filled hour of exciting science experiments.
