spark SPARK is a new library program designed especially for 3rd graders! Students simply drop in to the Children's Desk at the library to participate in three space-themed activities. They will earn prizes while also learning library skills in a fun and engaging way. Every three months, we will have a new theme with more activities. All 3rd grade participants are eligible to receive a limited one-year library card. A big thank you to the Friends of the Library and PARC Grant for sponsoring this program.
