Whether it's an old-fashioned mother-daughter celebration or a fun exploration of the fantastical world of Narnia, the Greenville-Butler County Public Library is offering patrons a world of fun and learning this year.

At 4 p.m. on Friday, May 12, little girls ages three through fourth grade are invited to bring their mothers along to the library for a special Mother-Daughter Celebration. Dressy hats and white gloves are optional, Children's Librarian &#8220Miss” Jean Bauer said.

&#8220This is the first time we have done this type of event and we hope lots of mamas and daughters will join us for an early Mother's Day celebration.”
