Six-week session begins September 11, 10:00 AM
Registration begins August 27th at 9:00 AM. Please indicate any food allergies in the notes field when registering. CPL librarians worked hard to tailor this program for a specific age group, so Snack Tales is for kids in grades K-4 only, with a caregiver.

Merrill is best known for two popular children's books, The Pushcart War (1972) and The Toothpaste Millionaire (1972), but wrote more than 30 books and twelve movie scripts for animated adaptations of her work. A common theme in her stories is that of an underdog overcoming the constraints of the established social and economic order. Merrill grew up on a farm in upstate New York and preferred outdoor activities, such as building forts, sledding, collecting fossils, and climbing silos, to playing inside with manufactured toys and being watched by adults. She died of cancer at her home in Vermont on August 2, 2012.
