Let's involve our pets on this summer reading journey.
Join us after the library closes at 6:30pm outside the main entrance on Oak Street. We will all walk to Huntley Park, while we enjoy each other's company. Maybe we can swap some pet jokes or stories.
At Huntley Park, there will be a refreshment and snack stand for us to quench our thirst and our pet's. Then we will take the jaunt back to the library.
It's a great way to socialize and get a good walk in that day. There is no signup necessary to this free event.
No rain date scheduled.
