5.18.2023 All Together Now

Hello friends,

As the days get warmer and the birds really ramp up their singing, you’ll find the library staff likewise stirring and planning and preparing for the annual summer reading program. This year’s theme is All Together Now, and we’re excited to celebrate this theme of kindness, compassion, and community with our community.

We have many new and exciting things planned for this summer: multi-generational book clubs, nature walks, art programming, gaming, music programs, a theater workshop, raffle prizes, and more! Oh, and did we mention free books? 

As with last year, we’ll have a large-scale community-made art installation on the front of the library. This year, we had over 500 people participate in the generation of these beautiful canvases. They’re all finished and hanging in the library atrium right now. Come get a close up look at the creativity found in our community before they’re hung outside later this month. 

We’re kicking off the Summer Reading Program on Saturday, June 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with a library-wide party. In addition to Summer Reading Program registration, we’ll have smoothies, touch-a-truck, a ukulele concert from the Skidompha Strummers, free books, and a sketchbook challenge. 

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, June 3 and again throughout the summer. 

Be well,
Your Library Staff
