FRIDAY, August 14, 2:30-4:30 PM

Join our resident island librarian Page between 2:30-4:30 PM to celebrate the finish of our summer reading challenge! Drop by the library island inside the Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing. Wear a fairy tale outfit, compete in a challenge, try our obstacle course, and win an in-game prize!

To visit us during the festivities, please sign up for text alerts. Text @brklibAC to 81010 to sign up to receive the dodo codes on your phone. All texts will be sent via Remind and phone numbers will be kept confidential.

During the two hour period, we ask that players are mindful of how long they stay — we want to make sure as many players as possible can visit!

Remember, if you can’t fly in at first try, wait a minute and try again. We’re looking forward to seeing you on BRKLib island!
