A new play program for toddlers and preschoolers, called Playdate, kicks off in June with drop-in time to play and make new friends every Tuesday from 3:00-5:00 p.m. There will be extra toys and a great opportunity for families with young children to socialize and play together.

The Out in Nature program, happening on June 16, July 21 and August 18, from 10:30-11:30 a.m., offers families with young children a fun way to participate creating nature-inspired crafts and encouraging curiosity in the world around them with games and activities. 
The annual Summer Spark reading program for ages 0-18 begins on June 1 and runs through August 31. Summer Spark encourages everyone to get into good books all summer long, and to get started, kids and teens can visit the library to sign up, pick up a reading log and pick out a free book to keep.
