RCMP officers will be at upcoming special storytime programs at the downtown library branch on Feb. 28, March 2 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. They will be reading to children ages three and up.

They will also read at the Toddler Fun program on March 7, from 11 to 11:30 a.m., for ages 18 months to three years.
