SHREWSBURY - Children three years of age and older are invited to make cards and plant flower pots for special Mother's Day celebrations at the Monmouth County Library Eastern Branch this Saturday at 2 p.m.
Monmouth County Library Commission Chair Renee B. Swartz will be on hand to read stories to children and help them create special cards for their mothers. Members of Master Gardeners of Monmouth County will also be on had to help children plant flowers in small pots as gifts for their mothers.
"I'm looking for a great afternoon of interacting with the youngest users of our libraries," Swartz said, "and watching them be creative with crafts for their parents. Our libraries offer so many avenues of education, entertainment and research for children and encourages them to make use of their technology at home as well."
