What's Happening @ the Library: July 29-Aug.3

The air-conditioned library is the place to be this week as temperatures outside soar into the 90s and cool summer programs are happening inside.

A traveling theater group, puppet shows, movies, story times, and Harry Potter celebrations are just some of the great free things planned at our libraries this week!

The Traveling Lantern Theatre Company

This Portland theater company will perform My Mother the Astronaut, a story of a girl whose mom is an astronaut.
