Following the national theme, “All Together Now,” the library offers programs to accommodate all ages, from toddlers to adults throughout June and July.

On Saturday, June 3, at 1 p.m., special guest Dave Holland of Beatin’ Path Rhythm will kick off the summer programming with a show that will appeal to the whole family. A dynamic performer, interactive rhythm facilitator, and author, Holland will also be signing his new book, The Llama Who Rocks in Her Polka Dot Socks, at the conclusion of his program.

Mondays are dedicated to teens, as they participate in some creative food fusion, puzzle pandemonium, and much, munch more. Special guest, comedy magician Arthur Atsma will provide a special program for teens on Thursday, June 22, including one-on-one instruction in his magical arts.
Preschool children ages 3-5 are invited to join Ms. Ricka each Tuesday at 11 a.m. for friendship themed stories, songs and crafts, while toddlers ages 24-26 months can enjoy story time at 11 a.m. every Thursday.

Make and take crafts will be offered to children ages 6 and up at the library every Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m.

Programs for children ages 6-12 will be held at the library each Thursday at 1 p.m. and will feature ventriloquists, magicians, jugglers and even hula dancers! Because record numbers are expected each week and space is limited, the children will be given priority admittance to these programs. Parents and younger siblings will discover a plethora of activities in the main area of the library.

Adult/family programs will be presented on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Some of the highlights include a series of author presentations and book signings, appropriately dubbed Books ‘n Bites.
All programs and events are free and open to the public.
