With the harsh weather and other factors preoccupying the minds of busy Voorhees residents this winter, it was easy to forget that the Animal Welfare Association has been working hard to plan a lot of fun events for spring.

For the first time, the M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch of the Voorhees Library, located at 203 Laurel Road, is hosting the Big Play Date event. The event is set to take place on March 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“It’s going to be amazing,” Emily Moore, head of Youth Services at the library, said.
Moore listed two key goals of the Big Play Date. The first is to show people that a lot of fun can happen at the library, even on a Saturday. The second objective is for caretakers and parents to leave with a plethora of inexpensive ideas and ways to encourage fun and development, for children ages 1 to 3.
“You don’t have to have all the latest educational toys to encourage development in your child. I can’t think of a better way to spend a morning, having meaningful fun with your child and connecting with your community at the library,” Moore said.
