“Mo-lection” Gives Kids a Vote

Kids can drop by the Main Library Children’s Room to vote for popular storybook characters for President. They have a choice of three slates: Trixie & Knuffle Bunny, Elephant & Piggie, or Pigeon & Duckling. The "Mo-lection" runs November 1 through 7. The slates are inspired by author/illustrator Mo Willems' loveable characters. Check out his books and find more fun stuff for kids at the library ›
