September is Pokémonth!

Pokémon is taking over Cumberland Public Libraries this September!

Ages 3 - 18 can take part in a Pokémon Scavenger Hunt at all library locations. From September 1 - 30, you can go to your local branch and ask at the desk for a Pokédex. Catch them all to win a book prize!

Be sure to check out the Pokémon Parties happening at every branch in September! There will be Pokémon-inspired crafts and games for kids in Grades P-6. (Note: we will not be playing Pokémon Go.) See the Calendar of Events or contact your local library for dates and times.
