There are some great things happening at Cabarrus County Libraries this April 2018. Better yet, these events are typically free to the public! 

Since April 21st marks Earth Day, the library system is offering plenty of earth-themed events that your child will enjoy. From recycling classes to making art out of uses plastic water bottle caps, there is something for you. 

Science is also a big theme this month at the library. The 8th Annual NC Science Festival is already in full swing and has provided a fun way to involve children in the sciences for the past few years. 

On top of science and Earth Day celebrations taking place, there are also several new programs that the library will be hosting. Some of these events include a Yoga Class, Multicultural Films Group, Stories Under the Stars, and more.
