During the frigid temperatures of early February, youngsters and their families found an escape while attending a pair of educational children’s events at the library.

At the direction of children’s librarian Amanda Bosky, a morning storytime was held on Friday, Feb. 8, with a play date the next day.

The storytime featured more than book readings, with children also participating in songs, crafts and playtime. The play date allowed kids to let loose for an entire hour of extended playtime.
