Celebration + Thanks Parade!

TUE | Apr 12 | 5 PM | Library Lawn

National Library Week is April 10-16 and we’re rallying library supporters for a walk to City Hall to say “thank you” for our wonderful library!

As if it couldn’t get any better, Michael and Morris the Monkey from our ridiculously popular Toddler Storytime will play music for our stroll! So, wear your library t-shirt, make a sign telling the City why you love your library, and we’ll provide the flags (red with white dots, of course!) Once we arrive at City Hall, there will be a brief, 5-minute presentation of the library’s annual report and a proclamation from our Mayor.

Help rally support with our Facebook event!
