Bring the Family Out for Tails & Tales in the Garden

Published: May 27, 2021

If you’ve been longing for a return to live children’s programs at the Catawba County Library, make sure to attend the first ‘Tails & Tales in the Garden’ on Thursday, June 3 at 6:30 pm. It takes place in the community garden at the Main Library in Newton (115 West C Street).

The four-part series brings families together for in-person, outdoor events and promises to immerse you in the two main features of this year’s Summer Learning theme: animals and storytelling.

Kids will enjoy a bilingual read-aloud session with colorful picture books, and they’ll have time to play games, make crafts, and take part in other activities. They’ll also have the opportunity to learn about animals and to meet special guests from the Humane Society. Music will play, sidewalk chalk will be available, and the whole family can hang out and relax for an evening.

You’ll also be able to register for Summer Learning challenges, collect prizes for completed reading goals, and learn about upcoming programs. Please bring your own camp chair or blanket to spread out. Registration is not required to attend.

Tails & Tales in the Garden will continue throughout June and July. On Thursday, June 17, you’ll get to interact with a selection of well-behaved backyard chickens. On July 15, horses will be the focus of the program, and on July 29, we’ll gather at Catawba Farms (1670 Southwest Blvd, Newton) for a tour and to meet everyone’s favorite farm animals.
