Story Hour! Nanny Paws with Wendy Wahman

We're so happy to welcome author and illustrator Wendy Wahman for a presentation of her latest children's book, Nanny Paws on Sunday, July 1st at 4:00 p.m. 

Nanny Paws looks after Ally and Mae the only way she knows how—as a dog would. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for her girls. She feeds them a hearty breakfast (cookies are best), picks up their toys (teddy bears fit nicely in freshly dug holes), and even walks them to school (running them there is fun too). But one Tuesday, Ally and Mae come home sick, and it’s up to Nanny Paws to take care of them…in her own special way.

Join us fun afternoon of story telling and coloring!
