We had so much fun at our last altered books workshop- we are doing it again! Transform old books into your own personal story by painting, stamping, decoupage, tearing, cutting, and gluing! All materials will be provided though you may want to bring photos or mementos from home to personalize your piece. These recycled books are a great way to explore your creativity and create a lasting work of art. They make great gifts and scrapbooks! Join other teens in a relaxed, fun environment. See some examples from the May workshop on the Teen Blog. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Conservation Commissioner and DEEP Park Maintainer Carl Arsenault will take us on a tour of the trees of Marcus Cooke Park on Old Rock Hill Road. We encourage everyone to get out and learn a little more about the trees that surround us and how they help the planet. Wallingford is host to many different types of trees – let’s get out and explore!
As with all our outdoor events, kids must be accompanied by an adult.
NEW DATE: Wednesday, June 20th, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Passive nature viewing is not the only way open space is used in Wallingford. A ropes course was built in Bertini Park to facilitate team building and personal development skills in town youth. Wallingford youth in grades 4-6 are invited to this program with certified trainers. Registration is limited and parental waivers & release forms must be signed. Call or stop by the Children's Library to reserve a spot.

For all ages
What better way to kick off a magical summer of reading than with David Alan & Bogus.
This magic show is so family friendly it’s not even funny… it’s HILARIOUS. Bogus the clown never speaks but somehow manages to steal the show every time. We know you will not want to miss this one!
Treat your family to a summer of wonderful stories and more at the Wallingford Public Library!
