Family fun activities for kids in Franklin, MA

As the warm weather returns, people caring for young children will be on the lookout for fun activities for the preschool set.  And once the school year ends, there’ll be lots of free time to fill for kids of all ages.

Susan F. recently asked 02038.com about activities for young children at the Franklin Public Library:

“I was wondering if you know of any programs designed for 4 year old children.  We are new to the area and are interested in what the library has to offer for kids.

Thank you.”
