Good for familes!

The storytime crowd will be treated with a visit from a local Naturalist! 

Join Park Naturalist Isabel Ruff and dive deep into the salty waters of the ocean. Discover the creatures who make their homes beneath the waves, learn about the adaptations that help them survive, and explore the connections between saltwater and freshwater ecosystems.

This program is offered in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation. For more information about Summer Reading 2022, visit the website. Summer Reading is made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library
