South Branch Library
4310 Buffalo Gap Rd.
PH: 325-698-7565
Kids and parents are invited to join us for a great morning storytime event led by the Military Child Education Coalition.  Usually meeting on the fourth Friday mornings of each month, please note that in March, this event will be hosted on the final Friday, same time.  For this session, the featured book will be Dr. Seuss' "Now You See Me."  In this story, hide-and-seek is a great game, but Nick always finds where Sally is hiding, and that's no fun.  That is, until the Cat in the Hat shows up.  Feel free to drop in and be a part of this event designed for kids of all ages.

Don't miss out on these great activities being hosted at your library and get in on what we have to offer.
