On Sunday, Aug. 11 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Meadows of Millennium Park, located at 1415 Maynard Ave. SW in Walker. The event goes “Beyond Books” to celebrate the breadth of offerings that Kent District Library provides – and the area communities that makes it a success.

  • Food trucks, including YoChef, El Jalapeno, Do Your Wurst, Kona Ice of West GR and Sacred-Springs Kombacha, will be on hand to serve up goodies.
