Family Fun

"Madame Lanita"

Madame Lanita (a.k.a. Kris Winter) entertained the children October 18th at the Colfax Public Library.  Her gypsy storytelling caught the attention and imagination of our youngest patrons!

Who can resist dressing up and learning a new dance?

Even the youngest dancer enjoyed the song and dance, while decked out in pretty jewels.  Whoever said the library has to be a quiet place???
