There will be lots of activities to keep children entertained: face painting, crafts, a scavenger hunt and meeting Skippyjon Jones! Middle school students are invited to participate in our own game show “Are You Smarter Than A Middle School Student?” from 3-4pm. Print a voucher from the website or tell the cashier you’re there to support the book fair.
