PRINCETON — Tuesday, March 4, the preschool story time and craft will be at 10:30 a.m. The topic will revolve around cats.
Thursday, March 6, Wild With Words will be led by Martha Brunell at 6:30 p.m. This program is new at the Princeton Public Library and will focus on writing practice to tap the creativity that lies within. This is a practice of process rather than product, and is appropriate for those who never write and those who write all the time. The program will explore and play with words, and help writers to find the sound of their writing voice. This is an accessible, inexpensive and fun process for a wide range of people. Registration is required. To register, call 815-875-1331 or stop by the circulation desk at the library.
Just a reminder: Friday, March, 7 is the deadline for art submissions for the upcoming Connecting Threads art show.
