In celebration of Children’s Book Week, the Morris Area Youth Services Committee (MAYS) presents:
Program is now closed.
Each participating M.A.I.N. library decorated a section of their children’s space to represent a favorite children’s story. Patrons had the opportunity to visit the Pigeon from “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” at the Denville Library, step into the world of “Mother Goose” at Florham Park Library, and earn your own wand at Madison Library’s very own “Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!” At each participating library patrons had the chance to enter to win a fun prize.
*Winners will be announced Friday, May 30th, 2014.*
