  • Come out and play! Summer programs for kids and families

    All summer long, we are taking our favorite stories and activities to your favorite parks and places around town. Join us for a Movie in the Park, pack a picnic lunch and listen to live music at our Music in the Park family concerts or enjoy stories and songs at our weekly Storytimes in the Park. Tweens and teens can take in the calming effects of the great outdoors and try yoga at North School Park. Plus our StoryWalk® series continues with a new story each month for families to enjoy while walking around Lake Arlington.
