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 Day the Crayons Quit” at the Wharton Library, step into the world of “Curious George” at the Montville Library, and battle the gods with Percy Jackson at the Long Hill Library!  At each participating library patrons can enter to win a fun prize. The more libraries you visit, the better your chances of winning!

Congratulations to all our winners!
