The Children's Department is getting excited to visit the local schools to promote our summer reading program. We have been browsing new fiction/nonfiction books and creating flyers and booklists. This year's summer reading theme is Dive In! Our school visits begin the week of May 10th so be sure to look for us at your school!
Let's dive in and take a look at some new picture books:
