For the third year, we celebrated a very successful “Countdown to Kindergarten Day” party on Aug. 23. Over 80 children entering kindergarten this fall and their families were treated to an evening of fun activities, dinner and gift bags. The staff and Friends of the Connolly Branch Library extend thanks to the generous volunteers and local businesses that contributed to this event.
