Dear PJ Families,
We are in the home stretch to summer vacation and all the fun that comes with the carefree days of the season including beach days, BBQs, and trips to the ice cream shop. If you are thinking of taking a road trip this summer, check out the article about PJ Library's picks of the Top 10 kid-friendly cities to visit. Newport, RI made the list and is right in our own backyard!
We are in the midst of planning our summer programming; be sure to check out the PJ Library Rhode Island Facebook page for details. We would also love to hear your thoughts for new programs; message us with any ideas. Or better yet, share them with us in person at our next Shababa story time on June 15 at 10:00am at the Dwares JCC.
Enjoy the lazy summer days, and keep reading!
