  • Temperatures will still be taken and recorded

  • Interior space is limited to 50% capacity (around 60 people) per WA State COVID guidelines and those of the Diocese of Olympia,

GUARD YOUR VEGETABLES! Our next book is Bunnicula, written by Harold. Harold’s fulltime occupation is dog. Harold lives with Mr. and Mrs. Monroe and their sons Toby and Pete. Also sharing the home are a neurotic cat named Chester and a rabbit. It is because of Bunnicula that Harold turned to writing. Someone had to tell the full story of what happened in the Monroe household after Bunnicula arrived.

Join us from 3:30-4:00 pm on Mondays for Sister D.’s read-a-loud.  Share with friends of all ages! Especially good for first grade and above, this story is a delightful mystery!
