Spring Break in the Library
Look at the fantastic time our community had in the Library during Spring Break! The Huntsville Audubon Society sponsored "An Avian Adventure." Teens made their own macrame wall art. Children combined dance lessons with coding classes to learn the basics of animation. What a great week of learning and fun!
