At the Children of Our Homeland Center (or Children’s Library), children and their families played a variety of the following fun-filled games: Wii Bowling, Media Enhanced Books or AV2, trivia games, and more. As a treat, the Saipan Marianas Alpha Leo Club were celebrity guest readers for Saturday Storytime.
All activities were free and open to the public.
