Movie-style concessions will be sold in support of the new Kids Corner. Please note: This film might be too scary for younger children, parental guidance suggested.

The world of Dorothy, Toto, and Oz will be at the heart of this year’s event, which will feature inflatables, music, and a Wizard of Oz themed costume contest. Additionally, families will be invited to “Dunk the Wicked Witch” and members of the library’s staff at a dunk tank and challenged to follow the yellow brick road in our games!
