Spring Explorations @ Your Library!


In spite of the weather, spring is on the way.  WCLS has a full line-up of programs and events in our Spring Explorations magazine, available at your library and throughout our communities.  Or, take a look at Explorations online and get ready for spring!

This month, we’re featuring book reviews by our expert staff, exciting and informative events on local history, living “green,” gardening, and literature.  Share your reading in one of our book discussions or poetry groups, or get on the other side of the pen and work on your writing.  Are you all about DIY and crafts? Attend any of 14 “make-it” programs. There are plenty of programs for teens and kids, too. Dress up for a Dr. Seuss party, or get your thespian on with Reader’s Theatre for teens.
