February is Library Lovers Month AND Chocolate Month at our cafes!

Posted on

Come for the coffee, stay for the company and conversation!
Our cafés are free, and you’re welcome to bring munchies to share!

One of my favorite childhood memories is of my trips to our local library. It was an old building and the children’s section was downstairs in the basement. I remember spending hours curled up in the corner reading all their Madeline books over and over. Do you have happy memories of your local library? What was your favorite book growing up, or your all-time absolute favorite now? I hope you’ll join us as we talk about the books that are special to us.

We’ve also added a new activity we’re calling Movement and Memory. We’ll start the fun at 10:10 am.


And not to forget another important celebration in February . . .

It’s chocolate month! We’ll have lots of chocolatey munchies, but you are always welcome to bring your own creations or finds!
