Block Party!

Kids of all ages are invited to Bayne Library on Saturday, March 30th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. as we close our 2nd floor for a “Block” Party!

Come test your building skills and have some indoor fun. We’ll have Legos, K’Nex, wooden blocks, cardboard blocks, magnetic blocks, Lincoln Logs and more. There will be something available for every age and skill level, so bring the whole family! Refreshments will be provided. No registration needed. 

This event is made possible with support from the Remake Learning Network’s Great Remake grant through the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative.

Come build with us!

Delta Wedding

A vivid and charming portrait of a large southern family, the Fairchilds, who live on a plantation in the Mississippi delta. The story, set in 1923, is exquisitely woven from the ordinary events of family life, centered around the visit of a young relative, Laura McRaven, and the family’s preparations for her cousin Dabney’s wedding.
