Fall 2.0 Guide & new Halloween Happenings
We just added a ton of new fall programs!

The 100-page Fall Program Guide lives online and features nearly-daily updated classes and events! Look for additions to the guide since August 1 on the inside cover.

In addition, today, we offer two new publications:

The Fall 2.0 Guide, an online publication featuring new after-school activities, clubs and outdoor sports.

And a second online piece, featuring a whole new roster of October Halloween Happenings!

The Fall Program Guide includes links to every new class and event in all three guides. Check it out and don't miss out on any of the fun!

Story Stroll: Laramie Park
through September 27

Free! Through Sunday, September 27, bring the family to Laramie Park and read the wonderful children's book, "Stellaluna" by Janell Cannon. The book pages will be laminated and attached to kiosks along the park path. As you stroll along the trail, you will be directed to the next page in the story. 

Enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time!
