The Morris Area Youth Services Group (MAYS) presents:

stepintostory Program is Now Closed!

Each participating M.A.I.N. library  has decorated a section of their children’s space to represent a favorite children’s story. Patrons will have the opportunity to visit such stories as “The Little Prince” at the Wharton Library, step into the world of “Harry Potter” at the Pequannock Public Library, and laugh along with the Pigeon at the Riverdale Library!  At each participating library patrons can enter to win a fun prize. The more libraries you visit, the better your chances of winning!
