Program Description

National Aardvark Day Story Time

Join us for a special Fun Friday Story Time celebrating National Aardvark Day, and of course the most famous aardvark, Arthur Read!

Kids of all ages and their caregivers are welcome to read, sing, and dance with us during this fun story time.

Feel free to dress up as your favorite Arthur character. After story time stop by the Children's Desk and sign up for a library card. 'Cause having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card!
