Summer Reading Kickoff Event: Petting Zoo!

Kick off this year’s Summer Reading Program with a petting zoo! The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program is Tails and Tales, so in keeping with the theme,  Mountainside Stables will be bringing their animals to the library lawn.  Come see an alpaca, goats, sheep, lambs, mini donkey, baby calf, and rabbits!

Summer is the time to help your child develop a lifelong love of reading, and what could be more fun than adding animals to the mix?  The whole family is invited to this special event.
