There’s a lot happening at the library in the spring, too. See the full schedule and plan an outing to attend awesome annual events like the Green Fair, Edible Books and The Annual Art Exhibit for Children. Starting in mid-April, you’ll be able to check out a bike from Topeka Metro right at the library, stuff your basket full of books and DVDs and head out on the town.
