Miss Michelle invites you to come and see the Afton Free Library Garden Storywalk which is on display from now until the end of July. The outdoor story experience is based on the story “I Took My Frog to the Library” by Eric A. Kimmel. Our Garden Storywalk was made possible through the American Library Association’s Grant for Small and Rural Libraries.
Whooo is ready for some fun?… Join us July 22nd at 2:30 pm for a story, craft, and nature activity with our special guest from Cornell Cooperative Extension. It will be a HOOT! Space is limited so please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
During the month of July, the Afton Free Library will be having its Childrens’ Summer Reading Program. This summer’s program about animals is titled “Tale and Tales”.
Starting July 1st, families will be able to pick up activity packets for their children. Each packet will have fun and games, as well as a reading log and a special challenge for the young reader. Each week will have a different packet, so collect all four.
Among the topics for this summer’s programs are:
July 1-7: “Reading on the Wild Side”
July 8-14: “All Sorts of Tails & Tales”

In addition to our reading packets, we will have a StoryWalk at the library. The StoryWalk will open beginning July 10th.
