Peshtigo Library Story Time

Peshtigo Public Library story time has returned! Friday mornings at 10:30 story time begins for our preschool-aged children. The program goes for half an hour and includes two stories, and a craft to follow. Our next story time will be on September 29th with stories about Fall. On October 6th it is all about apples, and on October 13th we are taking a trip to the old west to read about cowboys. We have a lot of fun and hope you will come join us at our next story time.
