We had a very full week here at the library. On Tuesday Bartow Middle School vocal students performed for our Brown Bag Concert Series. They were delightful and truly talented. I had the chance to catch a couple of their songs and was amazed at such young talent. We also had one of our biggest attendances for it. I am so pleased that this program continues to grow. Please share this wonderful program with your friends so we can continue to grow and support the musical talent of our community.
The younger generation also had some fun activities here this week. Tuesday was a Mad Hatter Tea Party complete with flamingo croquet, Pin the Grin on the Cheshire Cat, a Cards craft and of course, a tea fit for a Queen.
Thursday was our Anti-Valentine’s Day Jeopardy for teens. All the questions were void of any mushy or love stuff and quite funny to listen in on.
