Norwalk Easter Public Library wants to invite all community members to a Family Fun Day on Saturday, Oct. 1.
The Family Fun Day is the promised rescheduled Friends of the Library Carnival from July 4th that had to be postponed due to weather. We are also hosting the Family Fun Day to thank you for all your support this last summer as we were able to host our largest summer reading program ever. We had 1,061 youth participants, 344 adult participants and more than 75 youth volunteers. The summer reading program for kids was to Dream Big. And that is exactly what we did when we asked the community to help us reach our goal of more than 1,000 kid/teen participants. We also dreamed big when we tried the adult program for the first time ever. We look forward to next year’s program for everyone in our community.
In the meantime, the library is also starting to gear up for a fall. We will not be having storytimes during the month of August to give us a chance to plan for the fall programming. Please watch our electronic-newsletter, website, or Facebook for more information.
However, here is a sneak peak at some of the upcoming programs @ the Norwalk Library.
