Just before the snowstorm on Saturday the 10th, Rex, London, Maddie and I headed over from the girls’ Mendham Patriots basketball clinic to the Mendham Township Public Libary.  London’s second grade art class at Mendham Township Elementary School had their projects on display in late December and early January; unfortunately, it seemed as though we had just missed it, and that the library was ready to move on to its next exhibit.

However, we took the opportunity to stock up on books for the wintry weekend.  London picked out four mysteries in the Nancy Drew series, while Maddie focused on Cam Jansen.  I picked up a few fliers on the following Mendham Township Library Children’s Winter Programs:

  • Story Time with Liz (registration is NOT required):   Children of all ages welcome to join in the fun and enjoy stories, fingerplays, songs, dances and musical instruments.  Every Tuesday at 10:30am.
