On Monday, June 7th, we will kick off summer reading program with a visit from therapeutic horsemanship program Boots to Grasses!
Miss Laura, the program administrator, will be here, along with volunteer Miss Jennifer and two of their mini horses, Arrow and Dottie!
Join us on the library lawn at 1:00 pm to meet the mini horses and learn more about the program, such as how horses and horseback riding can help people, and see examples of tack and other horse-riding gear. There will even be a saddle on a stand available for photo opportunities! Please wear closed-toe shoes if possible, so you can get up close to the horses.
Summer reading challenge kits will also be available for pickup, along with other small prizes! We're so excited to see everyone!
More about SRP!
