The theme for December is “Winter Holidays”.  Margie’s multi-sensory program builds skills on a bi-weekly basis, in order for children to reach the developmental goals they need to enter kindergarten. Margie brings items such as beanbags, scarves, puppets, or instruments.  Many Haddam children have grown up with Margie as she has been coming to Brainerd Library for 20 years. Along with her two regular visits, Margie will be giving her friends at Brainerd a very special Happy 20th Anniversary program on Thursday, Dec. 28th at 6:30 pm.  Space is limited, so please call 860-345-2204  to register.
