Tails and Tales Summer Reading Program kickoff!

Pick up your booklet in the Children's Room, or in the lower Lobby. Join us outside by the lawn (if the weather is good) for a Storywalk and ice cream from 2:30 - 4:00 pm!


Story Walks: These will be held on two dates, each at a different location in Rochester. All families welcome.

Could You Survive the Wilderness?: We will read a “You Choose” book and see if we can survive! This program is for kids age 8 and up.

Shadow Puppet Show: Watch a shadow puppet show on our YouTube channel! Find out How the Bear Lost His Tail followed by a short tutorial on how to make your own shadow puppets.

ASL (American Sign Language) Workshop: an informal program where we will learn the ABCs and 123s of American Sign Language. We will start with the manual alphabet (fingerspelling) and numbers.

Woodland animal masks: for ages 2 and up.

Fluffy Skunk picture: for ages 2 and up.

*Children can drop by for crafts. Older children may attend independently, but younger children under 10 should be accompanied by an adult.


We will offer drop-in story times geared for children age 2 through 6, but all families are welcome! Bring a blanket and meet on the lawn.
