Winter is hard on birds, so it’s up to us to help them. That’s why we will be making bird feeders on Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 from 2 – 3 pm in the Public Computing Center (PCC) downstairs in the library. School age kids are welcome to join us for this craft. (This is a half-day for Sidney students.)
Kids Club will follow at 3:30, and kids are welcome to stay and play Minecraft, use iPads, or have fun on the Smartboard.
Our staff has been hard at work making updates to our offering of children’s programs here at the Sidney Library. If you bring children for story time or Lego time, be sure to check the dates and times, available:
