On June 16th, we honor Father’s Day, a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Here are some books, that you can find in our library, that celebrate Father’s Day and the importance of the relationships that children have with their fathers.
The staff at the Lake Bluff Library wishes all fathers have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend!
