Join us for a very special nature storytime. Ms. Karen from Monona Public Library will read books about ponds and animals you will find in and around our Wisconsin waters, sing Row Row Row Your Boat, go story fishing, explore the pond out back of Rutabaga, and more.  Depending on the weather, we may be on the deck outside. 

Don't forget your library card! Ms. Karen will have a few Wisconsin Critters books for your child to check out and great books for adults, too.
