Kensington Library

To kick off our programs for the new year, we were pleased to have Nora Rhoades return for a Brainy Babies group on Monday evening, Jan. 15th. We were thrilled to have several excited mom and child pairs attend. Nora will be coming again the third Monday in February (19) and March (19). Please plan to join us! Brainy Babies is an interactive program for parents and children ages birth to 3 years old. It is a fun learning experience that offers simple ideas to incorporate at home too.

Weekly Inspiration

Don’t lose hope. Everything happens for a reason. You never know what tomorrow may bring.

Life has knocked me down a few times. It has shown me things I never wanted to see. I have experienced sadness and failures. But one thing for sure, I always get up.

A successful person is one who can build a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at them.
