Take our Story Walk around the library for the Summer Reading Program 2020.

?If you're out walking with your little ones, walk by the library for a bit of interactive fun to liven up the day (and get rid of some energy) with our StoryWalk! This is tailored for age 0 to 1st grade, but everyone is welcome! This year's Summer Library Program theme is "Imagine Your Story." So, come imagine this one with us! Then, stop in for a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten booklet. It's a free, easy way to bond with children, starts them off to a great start with literacy, teaches them language and emotional intelligence. Plus, when they reach any 100 book milestone, they can get a prize and their picture on the website, Facebook and library (at parents' discretion).
