Central Texas Expressway, for a special story time with Olaf and Elsa. Join her at 10:30 a.m. Saturday for Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Storytime. Stories, songs and fun await those who join in this frozen adventure.
Create some holiday spirit while creating holiday crafts. From cards to ornaments, Children’s Librarian Amanda Hairston will show you how to be ready for the holidays with personal flair.
