Children and teens in T. B. Scott Library’s summer reading programs are receiving two free passes in addition to their regular prizes. Thanks to the Wisconsin DNR, each participant is entitled to a free courtesy sticker that will allow the child and the whole family to visit Council Grounds or other state park for a day. Also, vouchers are being given out to allow each child a free ticket to the Wisconsin Woodchucks baseball game on Aug. 1.
Children, teens and accompanying adults may continue to ride free on the Merrill-Go-Round to and from the many special “Make a Splash” events.
Upcoming events include:
