Each week this summer we'll have follow-along videos and take-and-make kits you can pick up at the Library while supplies. We also have summer reading kits available for pick up at either branch, and an activity booklet you can pick up or print off.

Join Amy this week on Discovery Club where she builds a toad house, we hear about tractors from Farmer Dave, and learn about some good reads.

Our story of the week is Hello by Fiona Woodcock, read by Anna.
