Join Us for Tails & Tales in the Garden

Published: June 10, 2021

It’s time for our second, outdoor, family-friendly party! The first event was incredibly popular – more than 100 people attended! – and we hope you’ll come out for even more in-person fun!

This one takes place at 6:30 pm on Thursday, June 17 in the community garden at the Newton Library and will immerse visitors in the two main features of this year’s Summer Learning theme: animals and storytelling.

Kids will enjoy a bilingual read-aloud session with colorful picture books, and they’ll have time to play games, make crafts, and take part in other activities. They’ll also have the opportunity to learn about animals and to meet a crew of well-behaved backyard chickens and young chicks. Music will play, sidewalk chalk will be available, and the whole family can hang out and relax for an evening.

You’ll also be able to register for Summer Learning challenges, collect prizes for completed reading goals, and learn about upcoming programs. Please bring your own camp chair or blanket to spread out. Registration is not required to attend. (If it happens to rain, we’ll move inside to the library’s community room.)

Tails & Tales in the Garden will also continue throughout July. On July 15, horses will be the focus of the program, and on July 29, we’ll gather at Catawba Farms (1670 Southwest Blvd, Newton) for a tour and to meet everyone’s favorite farm animals.
