StarWalk KidsMedia is a digital library with hundreds of children’s books. Once again, during the month of July, StarWalk has generously opened its website to our library patrons to use under the title of PopUp Library. It’s a great opportunity to play with digital media while the kids are on summer vacation.
You can read these ebooks on any device with Internet access by going to starwalkkids.com/popup. You will have access free of charge for the entire month. This collection was developed by popular children’s author Seymour Simon and Liz Nealon.

Pop artist Michael Albert will lead a Collage Workshop and Book Event. Bring an empty box of cereal, crackers, tea or other food product to share with other participants. You’ll have time to create a pop art masterpiece to bring home. Wednesday, July 22 at 6:00 pm. Registration is required.
