"Imagine Your Story" this summer at the library! We will read fairy tales, mythology, fantasy, and folktales from around the world. We will also create our own stories, find out how things work with kid-friendly "breakerspace" activities, and explore the library. Designed for ages 5-12. Flexible activities; drop-ins welcome!

M-F, June 15-July 2 and July 13-31, 2020. Two sessions: 12:30-2:00 OR 2:30-4:00.

​​Programs and Events

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. Sound hard? It’s easier than you think.

If you read just one book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years! And we have fun incentives to keep you and your child motivated.
