What are the locations of the various AABE libraries? 🤓
Do you have any young child story times during the weeks of 12/24 or 12/31?
Will you guys be doing the Wednesday summer activities for kids like you've been doing the past few years?
YOu know what would be powerful? If the elevator was fixed so ALL citizens could use the library!! I'm pretty sure it's illegal to not have a working elevator and it's unexceptable that it's been broken for so long!!!
Please share and spread the word as we join together for one night a month. No matter what our affiliations or beliefs and struggles, we are in this together!
Where is the splash down tomorrow?
Please join us TOMORROW night for 15 minutes of hope and togetherness and KINDNESS! Please share!
