Summer Reading Party!!

Summer reading fun at the library is drawing to a close, but we have one last big event to celebrate! Join us at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, July 30 for our Summer Reading Party. We will have games, crafts, a photo booth with props, ice cream, and a visit from storybook character SkippyJon Jones!

Don’t forget to bring in your completed summer reading log to get musical notes with your name on them posted in the library, and your choice of a prize from our prize box.

Summer Reading presenters kick off the fun!

We are kicking off Summer Reading with a series of programs and presenters around our theme of “Libraries Rock!”

All three programs will be held at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on their respective performance dates in the Draughon Room (lower level of the library).

On Monday, June 11, Bobby Norfolk returns to the library with Rhythms, Rhymes, & Raps. Bobby turns traditional tales, such as “Little Red Riding Hood” or “The Three Billy’s Goat’s Gruff,” into finger-snapping, toe-tapping verse. He transforms selections from his favorite authors into comical and creative raps, and fills them all with zany vocal effects, lively animation, and tons of humor.

On Monday, June 25, Babaloo Music & Fun will be visiting the library. Babaloo will keep you on the edge (and out) of your seats with musical mayhem and lots of laughs! Not only does Babaloo play music with his guitar, but he asks the audience to make music along with him on bucket drums and other unconventional instruments.

On Monday, July 9, Mad Science returns to the library with “Sound Like Science.” This event gets children excited about science, with a particular focus on the science of sound. Kids will get tuned-in to learning with exciting demonstrations and experiments including the surprisingly loud Dinosaur-in-a-Can, the glowing Electric Pickle, and a kid-created Thunder Storm!

These programs are supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
