Why should kids get to have all the fun? Enjoy an evening of themed storytelling geared towards adults at the East Branch Library. A craft and light nosh complementing each month’s theme will be provided. A mixture of short stories, picture books, and poetry will be read aloud by the librarian.

On April 5th, we are featuring unicorns! Construct your very own unicorn horn and listen to a selection of stories focused on our favorite mythical beast.
