In ‘Clean Sweep,’ Monica Kulling explains to younger readers how Frank Zamboni, tired of manually shaving down ice rink ice by hand, spent nine years trying to come up with the perfect solution.
Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about bunnies!
