Art Cart

Join us at Stillwater Public Library on Wednesdays from 3:00-7:30 p.m. for Art Cart. In addition to being fun, making things with your hands benefits child development, especially fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

This self paced activity for you to enjoy with your child(ren) will be set up in the storytime room.
