Decatur Area Special Blessings Support Group
Jul 4 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Decatur Area Special Blessings Support Group @  |  |

There is no place in Decatur where families with special needs children or family members can meet with other families, despite the many organizations and resources available. So…this new group was formed with that goal. They currently are inviting all ages, ranging from families who may have a prenatal diagnosis up through adults with special needs. They do not focus on any specific disability or disorder, instead it is just a general gathering place at this point. Parents are welcome to bring kids (special needs and siblings).

Friends of the Library 2nd Saturday Used Book Sale @  |  |

How long can you talk without using the letter “A”? Answer: Just count from one to one hundred. And more trivia: one hundred and fifty years ago on this very date, Abraham Lincoln was elected President for his second term. And did you know that the FOL Sale Room has added more tables of fiction, mystery, special and non-fiction books to keep all this good – fun knowledge flowing. So stop by and shop for yourself, family and friends to keep that brain refreshed and to support our programs at Decatur Public Library. Our prices cannot be beat.
