MEET OUR FRIENDLY LOCAL WEATHERMAN
Our rockin' summer reading program continues with a program with WBBJ-TV's meteorologist, Tom Meiners. He will be here on Tuesday, July 17 at 10:00 AM. Please note the change in date from what was in our reading program handout. Tom has been to our library before and he does a fantastic job with the children. He will talk about how he forecasts the weather and he will bring instruments that help him do that.
All ages are invited to attend.
