Participants in the Hannibal Free Public Library's “Stories Rock at Sodalis Trail” will offer a unique combination of storytelling and exposure to nature as part of the Summer Reading Program.

The event will combine storytelling with a walk along the bat cave trail.

Children and their families are invited to join Library staff beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 14 at the trailhead, 819 Ely St. in Hannibal. Everyone is reminded to wear appropriate clothing and shoes. The event will be cancelled in the event of rain or other extreme weather. Read & Glue will be offered instead at the Library.

Part of the Library’s Summer Reading Program, this event is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Library Services and Technology Act, as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State. Local donors have also contributed to make Summer '18 a success.
