Summer Reading Kick-off
Wednesday June 19 at 4pm
It’s our Summer Reading Kick-Off!
This year’s theme is ” A Universe of Stories” celebrating space exploration and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing; it was chosen by library professionals to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story.
We invite kids of all ages (and their parents/caregivers) to a musical program: Magical Melodies with Chris Flynn. High energy classic children’s songs get everyone dancing and shaking. Come sing, dance, rock and shake with us at Magical Melodies! No registration.
Children can sign-up for the Summer Reading program too.
