Family Fun Trail at the Rathbun Library!

Visit the Reading Garden at the Rathbun Library for some family fun! Follow the signs around the trail and participate in the entertaining & educational activities. It’s a great way to get outside with your little ones, and enjoy our picturesque garden area. While you’re in the area be sure to visit some local shops, check out some books from the library, and pick-up a summer reading packet for information on how to win free books this summer. No need to make a reservation, the Garden is free to visit all summer long. Be sure to stop by often as the signs will be changing throughout the summer
