From preschool to professional, Plano Public Library (PPL) has something for everyone. Not interested in reading? No biggie – PPL is #morethanbooks! Check out some of their upcoming events – in-person and virtual – for all your educating and entertaining needs:
- Learn with parents (adults, registration required)
Parenting Conversations continue this spring with the child development experts from The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Children and Families.
