Reliance Bank will be presenting a free class on the basics of credit & savings in the library’s community room on Thursday, May 30th at 5:30 PM. Get the tools you need to be equipped to make the right financial decisions for you and your family, and keep your financial future moving in the right direction. No pre-registration is required for this class.
On June 1st the Friends of the Library will be holding their annual plant sale outside the library from 10 AM-2 PM. Donations of seedlings, perennials, annuals, houseplants and other green things will be accepted at the library during regular hours until the sale. Donations of new or gently used gardening equipment will also be accepted. We will also be holding a bake sale at the same time as the plant sale, so those of you not blessed with a green thumb can still support library services in the Tyrone-Snyder community.
Registration for our summer reading program will begin on Monday, June 17th, and we’ll be celebrating with a series of special summer reading events throughout June. Come get a preview of this year’s summer reading theme at our June Family Fun Night on Tuesday, June 11th at 6 PM. Dig into Reading is this year’s theme, and it focuses on all things underground, from gardening to ground dwelling creatures to archeological treasures. On June 22nd we’ll have our 3rd annual summer reading carnival in the library’s parking lot from 6-8 PM. Play all your favorite carnival games & win prizes! Refreshments will be available at the carnival for a small donation to the library. Another summer reading program tradition is our t-shirt decorating workshop. On Tuesday, June 18th at 6 PM kids can decorate a t-shirt with an iron-on transfer featuring this year’s summer reading program slogan and logo and a variety of stencils and paints. Decorate a t-shirt and wear it to all the summer reading events you attend! This program is BYOT: bring your own t-shirt. We provide all the paint, transfers, and other decorations. For the first time we’ll be presenting a free show from the teenage magicians of M&M Magic on June 25th at 6 PM. All summer reading events are free and open to the public (even if your family is not participating in the summer reading program, although we hope you do!), but we ask that caregivers stay with their children.
Our Friends of the Library will be presenting Groundbreaking Reads, the summer reading program for adults. The Groundbreaking Reads theme is focused on books that changed the world, and we’ll be spotlighting some of these revolutionary books in the library’s collection in June. Read books, attend special events, and win prizes donated by local businesses in our weekly prize drawing. So far we’ve received donations from Austin’s Texas Hot Dogs, Kim’s Beauty Salon, and the College 9 Theatre, with more donations to come. We appreciate the support from these local businesses in helping to make our summer reading programs more fun for the participants.
