Read and Share

Are you looking for a fun way to earn some Super Bookworm badges for reading this summer? Come to our Read and Share program. Bring your blankets and lounge chairs as we will meet in the Community Room and then chill in the courtyard while we read a story or two together.  Then we will take some time to read on our own and then gather to share what we are reading at the end. You can bring your own book or read one of ours. All ages welcome! If there is inclement weather this program will be held in the Community Room.

Children ages 2 and under and their caregivers are invited to join us for a special drive in movie... but first you'll have to make something you can drive. We'll spend the first part of our program turning the perfect child's plaything — a cardboard box — into a kiddie friendly vehicle. Then we'll all watch a short movie. And then you'll get to take your newly created cardboard car home!

Registration begins on May 24.
