This year’s theme is “Tails & Tales,” and we are looking forward to sharing our favorite animal-themed stories. Throughout the summer, we will be bringing you and your kids opportunities to learn about real animals with help from our partners at PVAS and Solsbury Hill Farms. Kids and parents will also get a chance to do some animal-themed centering stretching during Animal Yoga class with Jala Yoga.

Plus, Take-&-Makes for kids every week from June 12 to August 13.

And, don’t forget to join us every Thursday at 10:00 am for story times on the lawn at Trinity Episcopal Church!
