  • 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!
