Please note that this program will be held indoors. While children ages 0-5 are now eligible for vaccines, the library is continuing to offer outdoor programming and is slowly phasing in indoor programming for all ages. Until it is determined to be safe for both staff and patrons, we will not offer maximum occupancy to indoor events. Indoor programming in meeting rooms will be phased in starting with 30% of maximum room occupancy for programs for children. Please arrive early to indoor programs as space is limited.
