The Bloomfield Public Library is hosting a temporary Pop-Up Storywalk. The Pop-Up Storywalk comes to us by invitation from the OWWL Library System. Make sure to check it out! This is a special limited-time opportunity–it will only be at our library for two weeks. A Storywalk is a “novel” way to experience an illustrated story. Walk along a path made up of signs that display pages from a fun, family-oriented storybook. Please, come to the Bloomfield Library to enjoy This is School by John Schu. An outdoor Storywalk is a great way to enjoy the end of summer weather; this particular uplifting school story will help everyone get excited about the start of the new school year.
