Book Signing: Library Lion

Time: 11 AM

Meet Michelle Knudsen, author of Library Lion, and bring home a beautiful story that will delight budding library lovers. When Lion enters the Library, head librarian Miss Merriweather has little expectation that order will be maintained. But this lion is very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the Library floor, and he makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour.

Special appearance by Library lion Patience!
