2023 Summer Reading Kick-Off Carnival &
Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run
Our annual summer reading fundraising kick-off event is back!
The afternoon’s events begin at 3 p.m. with the Thomas Hughes Brinkley Memorial Fun Run. Children and their grownups are invited to walk, run, bike, scoot, skate and stroll the one-mile course that starts in front of the library and runs through the adjacent neighborhood.
The carnival runs from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and will feature a train ride, face painting, game booths, a rock-climbing wall, and a bouncy house.
$30 Wristbands – which come with a T-shirt, while supplies last, and allow kids to participate in all carnival activities – will be available at the O’Neal Library starting in May. Patrons can also buy wristbands and individual activity tickets at the carnival. (All proceeds go to the Children's Dept.)
