ARCANUM – The newest program at the APL has started off on the right (and left) foot. The Roaming Readers Walking Club meets on Monday mornings at 9 a.m. for a 30-minute walk. The sessions will continue through Nov. 11. This drop-in program is a great opportunity to meet new people, get some exercise, and have some fun. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver.

The popular StoryTime will be held on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. This drop-in program for preschoolers includes stories, songs, crafts, and lots of fun. Also on Tuesdays is the afterschool program for children in grades K-6. The Explorer’s Club meets from 3:45–4:30 p.m. and provides a chance for kids to have a snack, make a craft, play games, and hang out with friends. This is also a drop-in program.
