Children’s Department:

unicornSummertime in the Children’s Department will be for Royal Readers.  Grab a pillow or sit at the table and read at the Library.  Check out books and read at home.  Read alone or share with family or friends.  ENJOY!  Of course Royal Reader will want themes of fantasy, knights, castles, dragons, princesses, fairy tales, mythology, heroes, and trickster tales. We’ll have them all.

Join the independent reading club (June 9th – July 16th) to read for fun and prizes.  Check at the service desk for information about treasure hunts, reading relay, and the festival of fairy tales.

Loyola medical students will again be offering the very popular Wellness Wizards program.  Maywood Library and Maywood Fine Arts will have two programs in the park: stories and activities.
