Someday, Summer

by Dawn Stoops | Feb 09, 2017

It's cold and shivery outside. We've been bundling up the kids with hats and mittens for what seems like forever, but summer is on the way (despite the groundhog seeing his shadow last week). Did you know that library staff have been working on plans for our 2017 summer reading program since last September?

Here are just some of the things we've got in the works for June and July.

A magic show by Daniel Lusk

A kids yoga program

Free lunch sites

More than 5,000 free book awards for participants

More than 1,000 storytimes and programs for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age kids

hundreds of smiling library staff here to help


It takes a lot of time and dedication to plan, schedule, and prepare for all this great stuff. We take summer fun pretty seriously (and we toss in lots of summer learning, too). June 1st will be here before we know it so keep an eye on the library's website for more information coming this Spring.
