Summer Reading 2024: Library Programs and Workshops

More Summer Reading Events

In addition to our specialty workshops, we have reading and craft programs running each week in July.

Storytelling Sign

Reading Thursdays

Little Owls on Vacation

July 11 from 4-5pm

Children entering Grades K-2 are invited to come together at the library to participate in a read-aloud session and engage in hands-on arts and craft projects inspired by themes from the books.



Big Picture

July 18 from 4-5pm

Picture books are not only for little ones. Children in Grades 3-5 are invited to the library for a read-aloud and thoughtful discussion around complex topics and themes including identity, bias, and various social justice issues.



Battle of the Books Discussion 

July 25 from 4-5pm

Are you considering participating in this year’s Battle of the Books? Or, do want to read something new and talk about it with friends? During this session we will talk about two of the BoB selections: The Swifts by Beth Lincoln and Mabuhay! by Zachery Sterling. Open to students entering Grades 4-7.



Saturday Craft Labs

Amigurumi and Pom Pom Friends

July 13 from 11am-12pm

Does your child love soft, cuddly creations? Older kids can use our materials to learn the Japanese craft of Amigurumi, a 3D crochet technique used to make adorable animals and other cute plushies. Younger children will be shown how to transform yarn pom poms into cute and fuzzy creatures of their own design.



Make a Zine!

July 27 from 11am-12pm

Arts and activism unite in this open-ended workshop where children will transform a single piece of 8.5 x 11in paper into a zine on a topic of their choice. We will talk about zines as a tool for sharing ideas and as a form of artistic expression. Participants will walk away with at least one mini-book created (and up to 5 copies to share with friends and family).
