What's happening: July 17-22
Puppet shows. Messy science. Fun technology. Drawing workshops. Legos. And more! Here's a look at some of the fun programs at our libraries this week:
Children's book authors Elisa Kleven and Erik Brooks will lead programs in several locations this week. In Kleven's interactive drawing and story-making workshops, children will develop their own characters, build stories around them, and then create mixed-medium artwork of their own. Brooks will read from two of his books and then help children with their own drawings.
