- Social workers
Special programming is also planned, so be sure to join us for the following events:
- 11 a.m., Tuesday, June 20 for Healing Force – a rousing celebration of African culture through storytelling, dancing and song.
- 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, July 25 for Animal Architects with Riverbanks Zoo – exploring how animals construct their homes, build their communities, and influence the ecosystems that they live within while meeting a few animal ambassadors.
It is the second year that Richland Library has worked with Richland School District One to keep the library at Lower Richland High School open over the summer after launching the pilot program in 2016.
