Rosedale Library Children Programs for February!

The Rosedale Library has lots of children's programming this month:  including those in honor of Black History Month and in celebration of Valentine's Day and President's Day.  There are programs honoring author Mo Williams, Family Story Times, the February edition of the "Reel Reading Children's Book Club" and more.  

One extra special event is this Monday, at 10:30 a.m., when the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) will bring their orchestral instruments for children and their parents to see and touch.  This hands-on fun with the instruments that NSO members play during their concerts is a project of the Women's Committee for the National Symphony Orchestra.
