  One Response to “Youth Programs”

  1. Hey,

    I work for a local company by the name of sweet home productions and we are creating an app for events and activities for parents and grandparents to do with their children/grandchildren in the Otsego county area. I know that you guys have a number of events for children running on a daily basis. If anyone from your library has time to sit down with me anytime with week I would love to be able to pick you brain about different activities you have available, along with other activities in the area. Please let me know if this will be do able or not!

    Thanks,

    Brent Jones
