You’re invited to join us this summer as we explore a variety of topics,
inside the library and outside our walls!

Each of the three programs consists of two parts: an inside event,
and a "field trip" outside of the library. Each part is on a separate date.
For the outdoor components of these events, you will need to have your own transportation.
