We celebrated the return of Downton Abbey with a special tea last week at our Lake Branch.

Patrons enjoyed tea, light snacks, and Downton Abbey-themed trivia and games.

By the way, if you need a refresher before the Downton Abbey movie comes out on Sept. 20, we know this neat place where you can borrow the DVDs for free. (And, remember, it’s savouries, then scones, then sweets.)

Also, we have books you can borrow if you’re looking for suggestions on how to host your own tea party.

We’re throwing a Mother’s Day tea party that’s perfectly pinkalicious!

Families can celebrate the Pinkalicious way during our annual Mother’s Day tea party at noon on Saturday, May 11, at our Main Branch.

In the past, we’ve celebrated with Poppins and princess parties, but this year we’re throwing a Pinkalicious party, inspired by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann’s popular picture books.

We’ll have games, crafts and tea. The party is free and open to kids (three to 12 years old.) We ask that families only bring one adult each. That way, we can include as many children as possible.

We also ask that everyone bring their own teacup.

Registration is required. You can sign up by calling our Children’s Department at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
