Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – August 2017

Library events Logo

Hi all, we hope you are enjoying your summer! There’s still time to sign up for Summer Reading (all ages are welcome) and we will be giving out prizes through the end of August. Our regular after-school programs will be starting up again in September, and we encourage all parents to talk to your kids about respectful behavior at the library after school:  We do not allow any food or drinks in the library or on the patio in the afternoons, and the park and stage behind the library does not allow bikes, skateboarding, or scooters. Please pick up all your trash, and use indoor voices when inside the library.
