Children (of all ages) and their caregivers are invited to cool off ‘Under the Shady Old Tree’ this summer. Guest readers will read aloud, along with arts & activities based on a specific theme each week.

Friends of Vernon Park is seeking slightly used children’s books to distribute at these story times so that our young friends and neighbors can add to/start their own libraries. Attendees are welcome to bring a book to swap, but it is not required—we will have plenty to share.

If you have well loved children’s books in good condition that you would like to donate, please contact info@friendsofvernonpark.org.

In case of bad weather, we will meet at the library in the Children’s department.
