Pierce County Library events in November and December
Kids will connect with one another—and with the book character, the Wimpy Kid—during free events at five Pierce County Libraries in November and December.
Children in grades 3 – 8 are invited to celebrate the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” books by Jeff Kinney.
