An afternoon of family fun benefiting the Library’s Early Literacy and mentorship programs!

Our next Picnic will take place in Spring 2018!

In support of NPL’s Children’s Programming, the Picnic with the Library offers families an afternoon of picnic-style food, drinks, fun and entertainment in the beautiful Robinson Courtyard and newly-remodeled Children’s Department at the Main Library. Activities include exclusive puppet performances by Wishing Chair Productions, music, crafts, face painting, a photo booth and more!
