All ages are welcome. 4 pm. Wednesday at Long Beach Main Library, 101 Pacific Ave 562-570-7500 and 2 pm Thursday at Brewitt Library, 4036 E Anaheim St., Long Beach, 562-570-1040. Free. There were no dates, so call first to make sure it is an on-going thing! I tried but they are closed for July 3&4th.

OK. So I googled “Long Beach Symphony Petting Zoo” and discovered it’s for last Wednesday and yesterday! Rats! Sounded fun!!

However, all is not lost! Some fun still can be had with the storytimes I found listed in the calendars as well as other fun activities. Here is the calendar. Just click on the activity that catches your eye!
