Week 3 of the 2020 Summer Reading Program is here. We had a blast last week with all of the unicorn-themed activities.

We will also offer a dual in-library craft - Alice in Wonderland Flowers for kids and adults in the same session. Come as a family (or alone) and complete two different crafts. Our Take-Home Craft Kits are the same [...]
