It’s time for The Mary Baker Eddy Library’s 16th annual One World program—a series of free art and cultural events for children ages 4–12. This year’s program series is designed for everyone to explore online—from home, summer camp, or anywhere there’s a computer screen!

This series will take place weekly over six Tuesday mornings: July 13, 20, 27, and August 3, 10, 17.
