Kicking Off Barney Library's Winter Program Series

Tot Time, a parent/caregiver and child program for 0-3 years olds, jumpstarted the Barney Library's Winter Program Series with a group of two dozen people.  Books, music, puppets and toys paved the way for playtime and socialization in this 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning gathering, which will run thorough April 16.  It's a great way to stay warm, when the world is a winter wonderland and you are fighting cabin fever.  Why not join the fun?

Armchair Travel Visits Iceland

Thanks to the wonder of digital photography and the expertise of globe trotter Barbara Knibbs, Farmington Library's Director of Lending, Collection Management and Networking, Armchair Travel explored Iceland. Over three dozen participants learned about the history of Iceland, its topography, economy, and culture.

One of the wealthiest, most developed countries in the world, Iceland is noted for its geothermal systems. The Nordic welfare system there provides universal medical care and college education.

There were many questions about Iceland.  Participants were told to bring plenty of money if they visit, for a hamburger and beer could cost $27.00, which is probably why many people preferred to visit Iceland thru Armchair Travel.

The Joy of Reading

There is nothing like the joy of finding a book that you like and want to keep forever!  Why not stop by your local library and stock up on good reading, so that you will have something to enjoy while you sit in front of a fire watching snow fall.  Happy Winter!
