5. Family Events

Reading should be a family affair, so we've planned some activities that are great to get the whole family involved.

Rock Road Show - Thursday, June 6, 6:00 - 8:00PM

Everyone is encouraged to visit Thursday, June 6 from 6-8 p.m. to create their own rock kit.

So, bring any you have that you would like him to identify.
