Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, plus free coffee for adults.

Greeters with American Sign Language (ASL), English, Spanish, Hmong, Somali, and Karen language abilities will be at the main entrance to the building to welcome you, answer questions, and direct you to various activities or locations.
