Wednesdays: Rockin' & Rollin' at Battleground Skate House

Willard Library teams up with Battleground Skate House to help you rock your wheels this summer. The 50-minute programs will feature a story, a wheel presentation-including safety tips, a craft, and a chance to use your wheels in the park. Kids are asked to bring their own helmets and scooters, skateboards, or bikes as rentals at the park are limited.

This is a ticketed event. At the Skate House, Willard library cardholders may pick up a ticket, one per child present, beginning at 1:30 p.m. for the 2 p.m. event and 2:30 p.m. for the 3 p.m. event.

In order to participate, all children must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian and be accompanied by an adult.

Wednesdays, June 20, July 11, and Aug. 1,

2-2:50 p.m. or 3-3:50 p.m.,

Battleground Skate House, Lakeview Square Mall, 5775 Beckley Road

Participants should use Door No. 3 located near Dunham’s Sports, go through the long hallway, and take a right.
