This year’s theme, My Library Inspires: Body, Food & Mind, is about life-enriching experiences. So join us, and dive into a summer of foodie fun, fitness, crafty activities and storytelling at Library locations all across Austin this June through August. Book Your Summer and all Library programs are free and open to the public. For more information call 512-974-7400 or Ask a Librarian.
