Begin the New Year with a “rockin’” good time at the Library as the Mother Lode Mineral Society surrounds us with rocks, minerals, fossils, and more in a special presentation geared to families. This program will explore the “frozen past” with dinosaur and Ice Age materials in discussion and on display. This program begins at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 3. A great “after-the Holidays” idea.

“Music First” presents A Child’s Introduction To Classical Music. Join us on Wednesday, January 8 at 3 p.m., for this unique Family Program of Music and Learning. We will enjoy some of the greatest classical pieces and instruments in an interactive presentation that opens up the beauty and wonder of great music and its composers.
