Are you ready for a summer of fun and good books? This summer's reading program theme is Dig Into Reading! We will be exploring the wonders beneath our feet—gardens, rocks, animals, fossils, caves, gnomes, and more! The planned activities include special programs, puppet shows, storytimes, book discussion groups, free family movies, LEGO building, chess nights, crafts, a bookmark contest, Find Fido Fridays, and more. We will once again be starting off the summer with our Summer Reading Kick-Off for the whole family. This summer we will also be offering two big programs off-site at the Bell Cultural Events Center located on the MidAmerica Nazarene University campus. Click here for driving directions. It's sure to be a fun summer at the library!
All young readers (going into 5th grade and younger) are invited to pick up a summer reading folder at the library beginning Wednesday, May 22. We will continue to distribute folders throughout the summer. Folders will also be available at our Summer Reading Kick-Off on May 28 at Frontier Park. Use the folder to keep track of all your summer reading. Just for fun you may also collect colorful stickers for your folder each week throughout the summer. Bring your folder back to the library between July 29 - August 11 to receive a free paperback book!
There will be a variety of activities going on at the library this summer for children of all ages. Click the month links listed on the left to find out what is going on day by day throughout the summer. If you have any questions, call us at (913) 971-6874.
