We can't wait to kick off our Summer Reading Program on Monday, June 5th and we hope you will join us for some fun programs and storytimes! Due to large crowds in the summer, free tickets are required to attend all of the storytimes. Free tickets will be given out 15 minutes before the storytime at the Children's Information Desk. The child must be present to receive a ticket. This ensures a comfortable, safe and fun storytime environment for everyone. Thank you for your cooperation. We hope to see you soon!
