Each week of the Summer Reading Program will feature a hands-on activity time where kids of all ages can work to “Build a Better World”. This Construction Zone event will take place immediately following the Storyhours at both Dillsboro and Aurora. So mark your calendars for Tuesdays at 2 PM at the Dillsboro Public Library and Wednesdays at 2 PM at the Aurora Public Library. Our programming is very flexible this year and there is no need to preregister for kids’ programs. Bring your family at 1 PM for the Storyhour and stay at 2 PM for the Construction Zone or choose one event to attend. You may attend some programs at Dillsboro and other programs at Aurora. This year, you can choose whichever events work for your family’s schedule.
