Building a Better World with New London County 4H

We are so excited to be working with New London County 4H again this summer!  They have a program designed just for JCC Library that we can’t wait for you to experience.  There’s a new book-inspired activity each week.  Registration always helpful, but drop-ins always welcome!  Suitable for ages 6+, although adult supervision requested for younger children.
