And don't forget to stop in and borrow a State Parks Pass, a State Historic Sites Pass, or the Clark pass when you have company to entertain, or just want to spend a day outdoors. Passes can be reserved in advance. Just call us.
Our children's summer programs continue on Wednesday, July 22. In the morning, at 10:00, children ages 4 through 7 will have stories and activities about superheroes. And in the afternoon, at 1:30, children ages 8-12 will learn to tell stories with comics, presented by Ericc Cram. Ericc will show some drawing techniques, talk about what makes comics a special art form, and then we'll practice doodling and make a comic of our own. The possibilities are endless.
And don't forget our preschool story time on Tuesday morning at 10:00. Our theme this month is Starry Nights, and we'll have stories, fingerplays and activities.
