Kids' Events

Summer Family Programs

Wednesdays at 10:00am, 11:30am, or 1:00pm

 These programs are all planned to take place outdoors, on the grassy area on the south side of the parking lot. Please bring your own blankets to sit on. Those with chairs will be asked to sit in the back to avoid obstructing the views of others. 

In the event of inclement weather, programs will take place in the Constitution Room, inside of the library. In those cases, a limited number of tickets for each show will be given out 30 minutes prior to the start times.

All three program times are identical.
