Weekly Take and Make Kits: Tails and Tales Series

Each week of Summer Reading we will explore a different habitat and the animals that live there through experiments, crafts, recipes and more. Register to reserve your family’s kit by visiting the Programs and Events page. Pick up kits during library business hours at the 2nd floor service desk. The fun begins on June 7th!
