Summer Reading Kick-Off Event

Saturday, June 3
2:00–4:00 p.m.

This summer’s theme, “All Together Now” will be celebrated with acts of kindness, inclusivity, and working together. Join us for our annual Kick-off with sidewalk chalk art, rock painting, popsicles, a photo booth and outdoor games. And, of course, sign up for Summer Reading!
