July: Fishing Fun Scavenger Hunt

Summer is a great time to have fun fishing at your local pond, lake or even the Bookmobile! Yes, you read that correctly. This month you can come to the Bookmobile and “go fishing” for a hidden fish, frog and dragonfly to win a prize. We’ll also have fish trivia, coloring sheets, books on fishing and a fishing pole giveaway! And when you’re ready to head to the lake, remember to check out Hidden Lakes Trout Farm right here in Bolingbrook. We can’t wait to hear your fish story!
