Summer has arrived, and the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library is ready to explore A Universe of Stories with hundreds of free, fun family programs throughout the coming months. Whether your idea of fun involves exploring the ins and outs of Erie County, curling up under a tree with a good book, or spending time getting active outdoors, the Library has something for you!
