There are so many things to do and places to see for families in Lee County. And we’re going to take a moment today to talk about one of the tried & true choices … that’s right, the Lee County Library! The library has over 25,000 items like books, audio books, DVDs and magazines for children and teens, as well as story times for young children, and computer access for children aged 3-to-12.
As if that isn’t enough, summer time is especially busy for kids and families. The Library branch in Sanford offers special programs nearly every day, with a good balance of activities for toddlers, K-3 students and kids in grades 4-6. The summer theme this year is Build A Better World and each age group has a special weekly event in subject areas like art, story-telling, technology, friendship and even martial arts! Visit this link often throughout the summer, for a full list of upcoming kids’ library activities.
