Children who read often are more likely to develop a love of reading that can become a lifelong habit, increasing their knowledge of all things.

Pack up the kids and take a trip to your local library for fun-filled activities while checking out the new books the library offers.

Pajama-rama planned

Children can go to the St. Helena Parish Library, 1492 Library Lane, Greensburg, wearing their pajamas while listening to a story at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 23.

They also can bring their favorite stuffed animal to join in on the fun. Call (707) 963-5244.

Movie time at the library

There will be a kids matinee at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the library in Greensburg. The movie will be “A Mouse Tale.”

The movie tells the story of two mice and their efforts to save their kingdom from evil rodents.
