Children’s Movie Party

Tuesday, June 27 at 1:00-4:00pm in the Milne Room

Once upon a time, in merrie olde England, there was an outlaw archer called Robin Hood who dwelt in Sherwood Forest… Come to the Children’s Room to hear stories of Robin Hood and his band, make crafts, and participate in an “archery” contest, followed by a screening of the animated film adaptation (rated G) of Robin Hood’s adventures. Come in costume to participate in the costume contest and win fabulous prizes! Snacks provided.
