Handy with a pencil? We want your doodles and sketches! Check out a "traveling" sketchbook, create a drawing or two, and return it to the library. We're looking forward to posting your creations and seeing a great cross-section of talent in our community!
This summer's theme: ANIMALS (real or fantasy).

Enjoy a great story in the great outdoors! Read a picture book as you take a short walk through the woods next to the library.
