Moffat County Library Story Time in November

Story times for children are hosted every week at the Craig and Dinosaur branches on Thursday mornings at 10 and 11:30 a.m. in the children’s room. The library asks parents and children to come early as entering the children’s room late causes distraction. Themes for November include Thanksgiving on Nov. 17, while Nov. 24 the library will be closed for the holiday.
