Sunshine & Story Time in the Park  

As part of the Library’s summer programming, the Library’s Outreach Team is bringing Summer Sunshine Story Time to a park near you! We’re meeting at 10 am each week (sometimes twice a week) this summer, so join us in various parks around the city to discover new places and learn more about the natural world around us. Stories, crafts, and activities will be nature themed, and fun! Collect a different Park Card each time you join us. Collect 5 or more cards to earn a prize! Collect all 9 cards and be entered into a drawing for a grand prize.
