Summertime, and the reading is crazy

This is the new blog for the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library. We’re going to use this use to write about programs and other special events being held in the library. Many thanks to Emily R. for setting it up for us!

Summer is one of our favorite times of year at the library because of the Summer Reading Program. This year we’re very excited about all the special events we have going on for children, teens, and adults alike. We have so much going on this week!  Today we’ll be hosting a Guitar Hero jam session for teenagers on Monday from 1-3 PM, and on Tuesday we’re holding a Create a Frankentoy workshop for teens from 5-7 PM (the basic concept is that you take unwanted old toys and recycle, renew, and re-purpose them into terrifying or goofy new creations).

Wednesday is going to be a very exciting day as the Blair County Conservation District’s Creature Teacher Jody Wallace brings us the chicken eggs we’ll be rearing in the library this summer at a special program called What’s Hatching at Your Library? Learn more about chickens than you ever dreamed possible at the introductory program on Wednesday, June 27th at 1 PM.

On Thursday at 6 PM we’ll be holding two separate scavenger hunts for two different age groups in the library during our Starry Night Scavenger. Children ages 3-6 can participate in an activity-based scavenger hunt in the library’s children’s section, and kids ages 7 and up will go on a fact-based scavenger hunt utilizing the Dewey Decimal system throughout the entire library.

All these special programs are free and open to children and teens. Make the library one of your family’s summer fun destinations and be sure to like us on our Facebook page to get the latest updates on library news!
