Autumn is storytime
Storytimes are all about houses and homes this fall at the Forsyth Public Library. Children ages 3 to 5 and their caregivers are invited to the library at 10 a.m. every Thursday for stories, songs and crafts about places where people and animals live. During October, these storytimes are repeated at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evenings. No registration is required to join the fun.

Calling all LEGO artists
The library’s LEGO club continues from 4 to 5 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. Children ages 7 and older (ages 5 and 6 if accompanied by an adult) can create LEGO masterpieces using the library’s collection of blocks. The next gathering of LEGO fans is Tuesday, Oct. 8.
