Spring Programming Break: May 27 – June 9

Children’s programming will be on pause to give ImagineIF’s Youth Services time to prepare for new and exciting activities for Summer Reading Experience. Even though there won’t be scheduled Storytimes or Wednesday Workshops, the children’s department will have a variety of interactive activities set up for you to stop by and explore.

Do you love listening to a good story? Join us for our brand new read aloud book club for kids! We will read through two fantastic stories this summer. We would also love to hear about what you are reading at home, so bring a book along to share and discuss.
