NWPB's Explore Together/Exploremos Juntos and Mid-Columbia Libraries Present:

About the Event

Join us for a day celebrating summer learning—filled with curiosity, discovery and endless opportunities to learn and grow! Kids can meet and take their photo with the beloved PBS Kids character Rosie from Rosie’s Rules and participate in a range of activities. Kids will get a free book of their choice, take-home activities and their very own Explore Together/Exploremos Juntos cinch bag (while supplies last).  


This event is free and ideal for children ages 2 to 12. Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.

Meet Rosie from PBS Kids!

Five-year-old Rosie Fuentes is inquisitive, hilarious, and she’s an expert at finding—or making—chaos as she learns about the world beyond her family walls. Rosie will be at the Summer Kickoff to meet your family and take photos.
