Celebrate Storytime and Spread the Love with Socktober

September 22, 2022 —  It’s Socktober! The Library is partnering with Ambassadors for Children to collect socks for children and teens living with foster families in the area.

Visit your favorite branch for a special Socktober Storytime for infants-age 6. While there, you’re invited to drop off new packages of socks in the collection bin.
