Library staff will be at Glen Park this summer for poolside book break. When it is time to get out of the pool, library staff will be on hand to read and tell stories, and share jokes and songs. We will have a selection of books available to check out, right there at the pool, so bring your library card with you (it’s waterproof!) and do some poolside reading of your own.

The Kiddie Parade in intended for elementary age school children and younger. Questions, call Monica at 715-426-3484.
The Kiddie Parade is a popular event and it grows more popular each year. Even if you don’t have young kids to march in the Parade, come on down to grab a seat and see the kids in costume. The route runs around the outside of the library, starting at the Southeast corner of the building and marching West toward Main Street, turning on the sidewalk and marching North to Union where we turn again, completing the circuit around the building. Participants will receive a treat bag at the end of the parade.
The petting zoo will be stationed on the Northeast corner of the library lawn. In past years, we have had miniature goats, llamas, rabbits, and all sorts of unique and interesting animals, many of which can be touched and fed. It’s a delightful chance to get up close and see some animals that you might not otherwise be able to see.
The RF4C teachers come each year with fun games and activities. These are set up on the North library lawn, with all sorts of fun games that are appropriate for preschool and early elementary kids, including a duck pond, target toss, and water racing games.
Additionally, the River Falls Royalty is on hand to judge the Parade Categories and take pictures with parade goers and other attendees. Come ready to snap some photos and pose with the Royalty.
The library provides refreshments at this event as well, popcorn and water.
A HUGE “Thank You” goes out to the River Falls Library Foundation, who underwrites the costs of the Summer Reading Program
