Just for Kids

Our Summer Reading Program is now officially underway! We kicked off on May 31 at our Groundbreaking Party.

The slogan is "Build a Better World" with a theme of architecture, building and construction. We have settled on some really great activities! Unfortunately, most of the workshops in June that require pre-registration have already filled up. However, there's still available room for our visit from the Iowa State University Insect Zoo Building of Bugs program on Monday, June 12.

This year we are blessed to once again receive a visit from Dan Wardell of IPTV's Kids Clubhouse! He will be at the Library on Wednesday, June 7.  As in the past, he will present two back-to-back performances in order to accommodate all the kids who want to come see him - the first will be at 1:30 p.m. and the second immediately following at 2:30. Please select only one show as there won't be room for everyone in the children's area.

Our reading for prizes program is also underway. Kids of all ages - birth through adult - can win prizes! Come to the circulation desk in the children's area to pick up the appropriate reading logs. Rules and other information can be found by clicking on the Summer Reading Program link on the upper left side of this page.

Additionally, we have some wonderful performers lined up:

  • Science Center of Iowa
  • Keith West the magician
  • Mad Science of Iowa
  • the Hanson Family Performers

If you have somehow not received one of our summer calendars, you can pick one up at the library or print off a digital copy here on our site. Just click on the Summer Reading Program tab along the left side of this page. But remember to print off both pages - the calendar is on the first page, but the age requirements and other information is on the second.



And remember, ANY day is a good day to come to the library, hang out and maybe read a good book just for fun...
