Megan and joey.
Here I am 2 years ago with one of our Animal Tales visitors!

For some, spring break means traveling to see exotic animals or taking in great art and culture. But did you know you can do all these things and more at your local library? We are offering a huge variety of great programs for you and your family over spring break, and the following programs don’t require registration. Just show up and have fun!
