Curiosities In Your Neighborhood

Visit our bookmobile for kids, the Adventuremobile, this summer to check out books and movies, and to be part of hands-on STREAM activities. You can also sign up to be part of the Curiosity Club simply by picking up a membership card that we’ll stamp each time you visit the Adventuremobile. After seven visits you earn a prize.

Each week this summer we’ll have a different activity with a musical connection. Check the Adventuremobile schedule to see when it will be near you.
