Story times will also be a blast! Pete the Cat is movin’ & Groovin’ at storytime in July. Join Pete for stories, games, photo ops, and fun! There will also be weekly stories, crafts, activities, songs, and more, at branches across the parish.



Don’t worry, your children will also have snack time with tasty afternoon snacks thanks to a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank. The program will use Beanstack to log participation, earn badges, and win prizes. Branches are hosting a variety of activities. As you log your participation in Beanstack, you will earn milestone awards that can be picked up at your home branch. Complete the challenge to be entered in a grand prize drawing!
