Embark on a summer of imagination and creativity with our annual Read & Make Adventures, presented in partnership with the Dover Public Library! Every Thursday from June 20 to August 15 (excluding July 4), join us from 1:30-2:30 PM for a captivating journey through storytelling and hands-on crafting.

This free program is a delightful fusion of literature and art, perfect for children ages 4-9 (though younger ones are welcome with parental assistance, and all ages can participate). No registration required -- simply drop by and immerse yourself in the magic of reading and creativity.
