This week’s large activity is Bob Tarter from the Natural History Educational Company of the Mid-South who will bring some live animals to the library. This event is always the most popular one of the summer, so don’t miss out! Join us at the Main Library on Wednesday June 16 at 2pm.
This week’s activities focus on the “Wonders of Water” and were taken from the 2010 Summer Reading Manual.
