Kiwanis Storywalk Ribbon Cutting
Saturday, September 23rd at 11am

Thanks to a generous donation from Kiwanis of Southgate, and to the hard work of our Department of Public Services who installed it, we are ready to unveil a Storywalk! This is a permanent installation of 12 signs, each of which will contain part of a story, that circles the library. Walk the path, read the story, and follow the instructions for some fun! Stories will be updated every few months.

The ribbon cutting will take place in front of the library, near the main entrance. Kids who come to walk the path during the event will receive a free book, courtesy of Kiwanis of Southgate! We hope you can join us in celebrating this new addition to the library.
