Exciting News!

Our Reading Garden Patio Project is almost complete!

The back entrance will be  open starting on Tuesday, June 11th.  Please refrain from walking on the newly seeded lawn so that it has time to grow.

Join us for the official opening on Friday, June 14th to celebrate.
Due to the potential for inclement weather on Friday, Bubble Man, crafts and lawn games have been cancelled.

We thank FOBPL and all donors who made this project possible. Visit fobpl.org/outdoor for more information.
