The library is doing their Explore Memphis program again this year. Children and teens can participate and earn entries into drawings for reading, exploring area attractions, and visiting the library. You need to go to a branch to sign up. The program kick off is June 2nd and the program runs [I haven’t found the 2017 dates yet]. There are lots of special activities – I’ve posted the ones from the Central and Poplar-White Station Libraries on the EMM Calendar.
