August Fun at the Mar Vista Library
“It’s Showtime”, the LAPL summer reading challenge for all ages, is coming to an end Saturday, August 10. We will be celebrating the end of the challenge with a special program for all those children who read and earned their light sticks. They can bring their light sticks to the craft program at 2pm and turn them into lightsabers!
Watch for the winter reading challenge coming in December!
