Kids Euro Festival Fun at the Libraries

Hope you all had a great weekend.

It's Monday, and thought I'd kick it off by talking about the fun free Kids Euro Festival events going on at the libraries. I mentioned last week the Kids Euro Festival was offering free performances and programs around the DC area that focus on Europe. Well, many of the performances require reservations.  But, not the ones by the PG county libraries listed here.

And the cool thing is a lot of the library programs have snacks! I love snacks. Here's the list. Enjoy!
