Are the kids driving you crazy? Take heart, there are only 35 days until they have to go back to school.
County schools will reopen Aug. 31, a tad earlier than usual.
With older children going back to school, what will parents do with the younger brothers and sisters left behind?
The Crofton Library has just the thing to make them feel special, too. Starting on Sept. 23 and running until Oct. 29 is the very popular Story Time. The schedule is Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. for children 2 through 6 years old; Thursday at 9:30 am. for 2-year-olds; and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. for children 3 through 6 years old.
This program is free. The only thing the library staff asks in return is that parents or care-givers stay with the children 2 and 3 years old and become involved in the activities with the kids.
