Additional information

This year we will be at various parks from from 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children and families can pick their own book to take home from a wide selection of books, do a fun craft activity and hear stories read aloud. The Book Bike encourages summer reading by modeling that reading is fun!

We will also host a culminating event at the end of summer at Clement Morgan Park (August 9th, 5:30-7:00 PM).
