    It's time to celebrate the coldest-but-coziest season of the year! So hitch up your reindeer and go dashing through the snow -- and the sky -- with MINNIE'S WINTER BOW SHOW, a merry, magical full-length adventure. When Minnie and her nieces accidentally take off in a hot-air balloon, they are send on a whirlwind journey to the Clubhouse North Pole! Now that they've soared so far from home, can they get back in time to prepare for Minnie's big bow show? With some "Mouse-ke-doodle-dee-do" magic from Snow Fairy Clarabelle and help from YOU, all their winter-wonderland wishes just might come true!
     
    Admission is FREE. Toddler-appropriate snacks are provided but feel free to bring your own. These movies and shows are specifically for our preschool set (younger brothers/sisters are welcome).

The kids are welcome to bring blankets/pillows, etc. so they can stretch out on the floor and make themselves comfortable!

    This hilarious Christmas film tells the tale of a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts on Christmas Eve and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf. Years later Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York City to find his true identity.

     

    Admission is FREE and open to the public. Popcorn and water are provided courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Comfortable chairs are provided but feel free to bring blankets so the children can spread out on the floor.

  • Party PicCONGRATULATIONS to all the youngsters who joined this year’s summer reading program.  We had 414 kids sign up!!!  What amazing readers you are!  Yay you! Also, all the grown ups who participated deserve a big hand for the reading aloud they did, for all the tickets they filled out, and for all they do to support Lane's Children's Room in the summer and throughout the year. 

    We couldn’t do such an ambitious program without the strong support and collaboration with the local schools, their staff and administration. It is an honor and joy to work with such wonderful educators.

  • On Wednesday, June 12th at 10 a.m, Miss Paulina will conduct a drop-in story time for children ages 15 months to 4 years old. Representatives from the Richie McFarland Children's Center will be on hand before and after to talk with you about your child's development and to share the range of services they offer for youngsters. RMCC provides pediatric therapy programs, including speech, visual tracking, fine and gross motor skills, and social and communication skills.

    This is a great opportunity to speak with them about concerns specific to your little one—or just to gain valuable information about childhood benchmarks and progress in general.

    No sign ups are necessary. We hope to see you there!
