See What's Going on this Summer

Al BostickLibrary patrons throughout the system have been enjoying themselves at the touring programs this summer! With many events for children, teens, adults, and the whole family, people are sure to find something that interests them.

Some of the fun things that have been happening include amazing storytelling. Master storyteller Al Bostick and his fun assistant (pictured left) entertained children and their parents by acting out the parts of many animals. They leave the children laughing hysterically every time!

Stephen FiteStephen Fite is also a big hit with families. With his guitar, he gets the children up and dancing. This musical and fun-filled concert is also very educational for children. Fite's songs are loved and used by teachers and parents across the nation who have young and growing children.

The touring programs are still active in July, so if you haven't experienced one yet, be sure to come out and join us. Let's have fun together as a community!
