TV Tune Out Week and Librarypalooza coming this April

Tune In to Your Community and Tune Out TV!

April 3-17 is about choosing to turn off the TV and computer screens and getting involved in your community! Join in on the many activities going on around town such as a community book hunt. Little book shapes like this pic above will pop up all over town, be sure to remember where you spot them! There will also be a concert in the park, fire and police station tours, storytimes, and many other activities. To learn more about this year's TV Out Week programs visit
