If you’re looking for nearby activities for your kids this summer, make the library your first stop. With our summer reading program beginning, we’ve got a variety of fun events & activities for kids of all ages going on. We’ll be celebrating the start of our Dig Into Reading Summer Reading Program with a special fun night on Tuesday, June 11th at 6 PM dedicated to dirt and all things underground. Sign up for the children’s and teen’s summer reading program will begin on June 17th, and the summer reading fun will continue on June 18th at 5:30 PM as we host our annual Decorate a t-shirt program. Design a t-shirt with one of our special Dig Into Reading iron-on transfers and then wear it to all of our summer reading events! This program is BYOT: bring your own t-shirt. We provide all the paint, transfers, and other decorations. On Saturday, June 22nd at 6 PM we’ll have our third annual summer reading program kickoff carnival in the library’s parking lot. Free carnival games & prizes for the kids, and refreshments available for everyone for a small donation fee. We’re especially excited about a free magic show being held at the library on Tuesday, June 25th at 6 PM. Presenters M&M Magic are a pair of teen magicians from State College. Visit their website at mandmmagic.com for a look at this talented duo and their mixture of traditional magic tricks and comedy. Summer reading program events are free and open to the public, but we ask that caregivers stay with their children.
Our annual Brown Baggers Book Club for 4th-7th graders will begin Tuesday, June 18th and continue every Tuesday from noon-1 PM until July 30th. You provide the lunch, the library provides the books (which are yours to keep). A $5.00 deposit is required for this program. To sign up your child, call us at 684-1133 or register at the checkout desk. Space is very limited, so register ASAP.
Our Friends of the Library have just begun their summer reading program for adults, and they’ll have their own special calendar of events related to this year’s theme, Groundbreaking Reads. The Groundbreaking Reads theme focuses on books that changed the world, and we have an assortment of these revolutionary reads on display in the library. Participants in the adult summer reading program can win prizes donated by local businesses and receive coupons for free books at library book sales. To sign up, visit the Groundbreaking Reads table conveniently located in front of the checkout desk.
