The kids are off from school and we’re deep in the summer heat, but there are plenty of ways to keep busy — and cool! Mix and mingle with creepy bugs at the air conditioned library, take a boat for a ride in Prospect Park, and splash in a water play area while grooving to the sounds of some fun kids bands. Details on those and more upcoming events that are fun for the whole family:
