Celebrate Children’s Book Week

  • It’s Children’s Book Week May 12-18. Visit the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County this week to enter name for door prize. Celebrate with the library by attending these events:

Local children’s author Kristen Willis will visit the Toronto Branch on May 15 at 6 p.m. to talk about her book, “Honey’s Big Adventure.” Copies of the book can be purchased at the library. Honey and her girl, Gracie, embark on an adventure through the woods. Watching and listening to the sounds around them, Honey and Gracie discover that the woods are truly an exciting place to explore many of nature’s wonders. But it’s not as fun when you do it alone, which is a lesson Honey soon learns.
