From Books to Owls, 'Spark Saturdays' Lights Up Autumn and Winter!

New season, new shows

Our Spark Saturday Autumn and Winter season is here! It’s sure to be a season filled with magic, wonder, and a sprinkle of festivities just for good measure. From an owl who needs a little help finding her way home for Christmas to an adventure filled with monsters, magic, and mysteries among the library shelves, we’ve got lots to keep you and your little ones entertained. Spark Saturdays are returning, and we can’t wait to show you what’s in store.
