Thanks for making National Library Week 2016 at Windsor Public Library a success!  

The programs we offered included Knitting Group, Politics of Food Book Discussion Group, Preschool Storytime, After-school Program, Spanish Class, Teen Role Playing Group, Yo-Yo Club and a program about the Hidden Tips and Tricks of Facebook.

We celebrated National Bookmobile Day by making visits to the residents of Historic Homes of Runnemede to deliver books and National Volunteer Week by recognizing our volunteers at a celebration at the Snapdragon Inn.
