Summer Spectacular - Events for Families

Summer Spectacular Graphic

Enjoy the best shows of the summer at your library! 


Stop by the library and pick up your free tickets in advance – all audience members must have one at the ready to enter the auditorium, regardless of age. Popular shows have more than one performance – choose the best time for your family. These shows are well-suited for children aged 6 years and older - and their grown-ups! Parents are reminded that younger children must remain at their sides at all times.

Children 7 years old and younger have their very own Summer Spectacular event – Preschool Dance Party! Check it out.
