Carnegie Public Libraries will be hosting the “A Universe of Stories” children’s summer reading program. We will explore the wonders of our universe and learn about the solar system. Patrons are invited to try something new: learn new facts about space, read a new book, try a new craft, and meet new people. More information is available here.
