Travel Without Your Passport

This summer, you can travel around the world without your passport, by diving into a good book! Families with school-aged children are welcome to join us on an adventure through the Amazon Rain Forest on Wednesday, July 11 at 6 PM for our Family Book Club.

We’ll be discussing the first book in the Race the Wild series entitled Rain Forest Relay, which was written by Kristin Earhart and illustrated by Eda Kaban. There will be pizza, dessert, and fun activities.

Make sure you register online so that you can pick up your FREE COPY of Rain Forest Relay! You can also register by phone (978-433-0330) or in person at the Library’s circulation desk.
