Celebrate the Davenport Public Library’s, Dream Big READ! Carnival as the kickoff to the Summer Reading Program at the Fairmount Branch Library (3000 N. Fairmount Street) on Saturday, June 2, between 12 and 4 p.m. Be sure to get your picture taken with our new 25’ Libby “the Library Dog” balloon (weather permitting)!

First sign up for the Summer Reading Program, then stay for the carnival!  We’ll have loads of games, including: Bowling, Arctic Fishing, a Duck Pond, and more – including a dunk tank (weather permitting). Kids can earn tickets at all of these fun games which can be used to purchase prizes from our prize booth.

The Davenport Public Library’s Libby balloon and mascot costume were made possible by funds provided by the Riverboat Development Authority.
