Wake up and come straight to the Children's Room for a morning pajama party. You'll be warm and cozy as you hunt for your favorite book characters, enjoy breakfast treats, and cuddle up for some quality reading time. It's also Dr. Suess's birthday so there will be some Suessical themed fun. Drop in any time between 9-11 a.m. for the fun.
Teens, drop in to the RFPL to celebrate "Read Across America Day" by participating in a Read-In. Bring whatever you're reading or a librarian can help you find a great read. They'll have snacks and activities throughout the day.
Come the first Monday of every month for coffee, breakfast snacks and conversation. It's a great way to get to know your neighbors and library staff. Coffee Mondays are supported by Blue Max Coffee and River Forest Township.
