Fun and games for everyone

The La Cañada Flintridge Library is running three reading programs this summer: “Be Creative @ Your Library,” a summer reading program for babies and children; “Express Yourself,” a summer reading program for teenagers, and “Color Your Summer,” an adult summer reading program. Get the whole family involved. Ask for details in the library on how to participate in these fun and exciting summer reading programs.

In addition to summer reading, the library is offering many programs over the summer for adults, teens, and children. On Tuesday, July 7, there will be a poetry workshop featuring Lory Bodikian.
