Children ages birth to 4 and their parents met Monday to participate in the monthly program, "Discovery Time," held at the Columbia Public Library.

The program promotes early literacy and learning in children through reading, arts and crafts and interactions with other parents and children.

Parents and children attended the "winter discovery" themed "Discovery Time" on Monday morning. There is another session scheduled for Monday night at 6:30.
