Gov. Wolf Invites Pennsylvanians to Visit Libraries this Summer

Gov. Tom Wolf has recorded a special message inviting Pennsylvanians to connect with their local public library’s SummerQuest program.  In it, he also reads a popular children’s book I Just Like You by Suzanne Bloom (Boyds Mills Press, 2018).  Bloom’s book uses pencil and watercolor artwork of young animals to communicate a message of tolerance and acceptance. Please see the link below for Gov. Tom Wolf’s message.
