This month we are partnering with the Appleton Public Library and a musician from the Fox Valley Symphony. We will have musical storytimes featuring the book, Diary of a Wombat, with a wombat puppet, and a ticket giveaway to the PAC’s production of Diary of a Wombat.

Storytimes will be at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. (The library is hosting a separate storytime on April 4 at 10am.)
