Schools in Fremont started last Wednesday. As you are getting ready for another year of learning, don’t forget to visit your local library. Besides the many books you can check out, there are programs that may be helpful for you, too!
At Centerville Library, we offer different activities and programs for different age groups. Due to the limit of seats, some programs require sign-ups and they are all being accepted starting the first day of this month until full.
