Family Story Hour
The first Saturday of the month is Family Story Hour at the McClelland Library! Family Story Hour runs from 10:30AM-12PM and is filled with stories, discussions, and crafts. Our Family Story Hour program introduces parents and children to Irish authors, stories and traditions in a fun and interactive fashion. Family Story Hour’s new permanent home is inside the Library’s Castle Keep located on the third floor of the library.
