This summer, Washington County residents can enjoy the library outdoors at local city parks. Every Wednesday through the end of August, Hardwood Creek Library will visit a city park in Forest Lake or Hugo from 2 to 4 p.m.
This program is part of an initiative to welcome residents back to the library in any way they feel comfortable. Washington County Library is providing a variety of indoor, outdoor, and virtual programs to ensure library services are convenient and accessible for all county residents, and to meet them in their local spaces.
Library in the Park is funded with a grant from The Education Foundation of the Forest Lake Area (TEFFLA), a local non-profit organization that supports education and community activities in the Forest Lake Area Schools’ Community. TEFFLA’s $2,625.56 grant funding will support craft supplies, play equipment, and staff-time at library park programs. Events will include books and activities, Summer Adventure at Your Library starter packs, take and make project kits for children, and more.

- June 16 – Heritage Ponds Park, Hugo
