Get your dancing shoes ready!

On Thursday, August 4 at 5 p.m., the extremely popular Mr. Gym will return to the library for a children’s prom! To celebrate the end of our Wonderland summer reading program, Mr. Gym will play songs to encourage children in preK – grade 5 to boogie down!

This event is inspired by the Queen of Heart’s croquet game in the garden of roses, so the prom’s official name is the Croquet & Bouquets Sports Ball. Even if children don’t have any croquet gear, they can still get into the spirit – guests are invited to wear their favorite sports accessories. Baseball caps, soccer jerseys, swim goggles – anything to show how much we love sports! (Because this is a prom, children can wear sports accessories instead of formal attire – or along with it! It’s fun to dress up!)

Registration is required. To sign up, visit or call the library at 203-888-6944.
