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.
