Children's Event

Fort Building

Build forts with us in June! Bring your creativity; we’ll provide blankets, cardboard boxes, and other repurposed and recycled materials for making and decorating your hideout. Then stay to play or hang out for a cozy read-aloud.

This is the first of three Summer Reading hands-on building events.

Fee is for adults and children over 5.
