It’s National Library Week and here at VCNB we marvel at the vast resources available from our local libraries. All of our communities are served by libraries that are welcoming community centers as much as they are buildings filled with books. From traditional books and periodicals to movies, audio books, e-books and free internet access, libraries offer individuals and families free access to all kinds of media and information. Factor in the programming for kids and adults and they become a place to socialize and be entertained.
In fact, the list of resources available at our local libraries is practically a mile long. Today we are going to tell you about activities for kids available at the Pataskala Public Library. The following programs typically run at the listed times. Call the library or visit their website to confirm event times and for more information.
