Saturdays are Special

Saturdays are special at Franklin during the month of September! Each Saturday until 3:00 p.m. we will have an activity available in the children's area. Will it be a craft, a scavenger hunt, or an interactive experience? Who knows? You will have to come to the library to find out.

Furry Tales

Stop by the library to sign up for a ten minute slot to read a favorite story to therapy dog Scout. Sharing stories with Scout is a fantastic way to practice reading skills and make a furry friend at the same time.
