Summer Activity Centers for Ages 3-12

This summer's program theme is "All Together Now".  Each week we will offer a different community theme that features a variety of activities.  No registration is required: Just drop in during the open weekday hours and make, create, and take.  You can also take the crafts home to do instead. Hours may change.  Due to outdoor storytimes on Mondays, the craft room will open from 11:30-12:30 those days. The weekly themes are:

Week 1: Friends Forever
Tuesday-Thursday, June 20-22, from 10:00AM-12:00PM and 2:00-4:00PM
