It's time again for Play & Learn!

The Little Read Wagon team took a short break to recuperate from our summer Play & Learn programs and prepare for the fall. Beginning August 26 and 27 you have two opportunities to join us for Play & Learn:
Wednesdays 10:00-10:45 AM at Central Library (Story Room)
Thursdays 9:30-11:00 AM at Olympia Park (August 27-September 24)

Our full Play & Learn schedule for the year will be available soon!

Summer isn't over!

Truly it seems that what we are used to experiencing as a San Antonio summer has just barely begun! While the temperatures soar, remember that the San Antonio Public Library has 27 locations where you can cool off with your child.

The Mayor's Summer Reading Program ends on August 31. If you haven't already, you can sign up at or by visiting any San Antonio Public Library.

Tour of Parks

In preparation for the next year, Little Read Wagon staff is considering several City of San Antonio parks as possible Play & Learn sites. Which parks do you enjoy visiting with your family?

Visit the Parks and Recreation website for the full list of parks maintained by the City of San Antonio.

Can you identify this park?

Hint: It is on the South side of town and begins with a "T".

Can you name two places that start with "W" and are lots of fun?

Yes! Our Play & Learn locations for the rest of July: Woodlawn Lake and Walker Ranch Park!

On Tuesdays, July 7, 14, 21 and 28 the Little Read Wagon team will bring Play & Learn to the Woodlawn Lake Community/Wi-Fi Room. Look for us at the corner of Cincinnati and Alexander, on the south end of the tile-roofed gym.

On Thursdays, July 9, 16, 23 and 30 we will be at Walker Ranch Park. Please access the park from West Avenue. We'll be in the pavilion and playground area.

Programs at both locations begin at 9:00am. This week we'll be exploring birds and bugs.

I am an artist!

This week at Play & Learn we are exploring what it means to be an artist. This includes lots of opportunities for creative expression. Join us on Thursday at 9:00am at Martin Luther King Park (rain or shine, barring any flooding!) for some color mixing, singing, dancing, sewing, sculpting and reading fun!

Even if you don't make it to Play & Learn, perhaps you'd enjoy this book by one of our favorite authors. It's available in English and Spanish.
