  • Summer Reading Event: "Frozen" in July

    girly girl partea'sThursday, July 17 from 2:30pm - 5:30pm

    Olaf, the happy snowman, invites the whole family to join Youth Services Librarian Anne and Girly-Girl Partea's at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library for "Frozen" fun in July. We'll kick off the fun with frozen stories, bubble dancing to "Frozen" songs, decorating Olaf snowmen, topping it all off with a very special visit from the Snow Queen herself. Dressing up in your favorite "Frozen" clothing is absolutely encouraged, but not required. We look forward to celebrating all the fun things you can do "in summer." Thank you to the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library and Girly-Girl Partea's for generously sponsoring this winter wonderland. Please bring your own camera for picture-taking opportunities with the Snow Queen.
