Storywalk on Main Street

There is a  storywalk in town this week and weekend.

The book, I Took My Frog to the Library, starts at Sweet Charity with pages from this book posted on the windows of Main Street businesses.  Readers can walk down Main Street as they read the book.  The final two pages are at the Bixby Library. 

 If you read the storywalk with your family between 9-1:30 on Saturday, March 29th, there will be hot chocolate and cookies waiting for you at the Bixby!
