Prairie West Event to Celebrate Beloved Children’s Author

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, Fantastic Mr. Fox—all were written by Roald Dahl, the prolific author of nearly 50 stories, books, and screenplays.

Families across Siouxland Libraries are invited to explore Dahl’s world of pure imagination and celebrate his birth month on Saturday, September 8, 2018, 10:30 a.m. to 3p.m., at the Prairie West Branch, 7630 West 26th Street.

Create a chocolate bar, newspaper fort, and travel the road to early learning during a game of life-sized Wee Read and Play-Land. Storytime begins at 10:30 a.m.

The program is free and open to the public; registration is not required.

If an ADA accommodation is needed, please contact the Human Relations Office at 605‑367‑8745 (voice), 605-367-7039 (TTY) or at least 72 hours before the event.
