Story Time
Thursday Story Time for children ages 3 to 5 and their caregivers continues through April at Forsyth Public Library. On March 24, we will celebrate Easter. Will you find an egg? Our last session in March will explore spring. Come make a windsock craft on March 31! Story Time begins at 10 a.m. No registration is required.

Join other parents and caregivers of children ages 0 to 3 at weekly Baby TALK sessions. Age-appropriate books, songs, rhymes and dances are presented by trained Baby TALK instructors at each meeting. Each session allows time for caregivers to celebrate children’s accomplishments and ask questions about parenting challenges. Baby TALK meets each Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. at the library. No registration is required.

Be sure to join us March 18 at 10 a.m. for the next meeting of the Bookkeepers Book Club. The group will discuss Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain. This engaging novel asks the question: How can you know what you believe is right, when everyone is telling you it is wrong? Bookkeepers meets each month in the library’s conference room.

Spring Break Family LEGO Day
We love LEGOs! Do you? Join us on Wednesday, March 30 from 1 to 3 p.m. for a fun afternoon building with LEGOs. No registration is necessary, so drop on by.

Join us Tuesday, April 26 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for Steve and Kyle’s version of “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
