Library On the Go!

It’s a great time to get out and see Waco with your favorite librarians!

  • Tuesday, March 6, we’ll have a storytime at Fire Station #1. Hear great stories about fire fighters, visit the station and get to see a real-life fire truck.
  • Wednesday, March 7, we will have a Reading Pep Rally at McLane Stadium. We’ll hear stories, songs and fun on the big field while we cheer for reading.
  • Thursday, March 8, we will get a visit from a real Waco Transit bus. Meet at the Central Library and take a tour of downtown Waco on a bus. Be sure to thank the driver!
