Fairy Village! Help us turn our picnic area into a Fairy Village on Wednesday, July 22. Sign up for a time slot to come on over and create your own little fairy house. Bring natural supplies you collect, or gather some items when you are here. Things found in nature work best and remember, the Library can’t be responsible for anything you leave outside. Check out the KidLit Library blog for pictures from past Fairy Village events!
