Summer of Wonder - Week 12: Baby Storytime, Virtual Claymobile, Family Food and Wellness, and Drawing with Yona!

By Emily S. RSS Fri, August 14, 2020

Our virtual Summer of Wonder is nearly over, and schools will be back in session soon! The students in your life might be headed back to the classroom or learning virtually. Help your youngest learners process their back-to-school feelings with Miss Jade from Early Learning. But there are still a couple weeks of virtual summer fun to enjoy! Snap a picture of your favorite summer memory, and share it in celebration of World Photography Day.

And don’t forget: patrons of all ages and camp groups can still sign up for the Summer of Wonder online. Have you earned your completion badge yet? Keep an eye out for our virtual Fall Challenge, coming soon...
