'Once upon a story night'

"It was New Year's Eve. Lisa and Max were very excited. ..."

Stories, crafts and songs are all part of the weekly Family Story Night at the Largo Library. The event typically draws about a dozen children, who are encouraged to wear their pajamas and bring a teddy bear. The kids also dance and participate in sing-alongs. It's just one of the many family-friendly events held at the library, 120 Central Park Drive. To learn more, call (727) 587-6715.


Did you know? The Largo Public Library began in 1914 as a project of the Largo Woman's Club.
