What’s Happening at the Library
“A Universe of Stories” is the theme of our summer reading program this year! Everyone from pre-readers through adults is welcome to participate, with sign-up beginning June 1st. To kick off the summer, we welcome the Minnetrista Theatre on Wednesday, June 5th at 6:00 p.m. for their production of Little Red Riding Hood. Wacky Wednesday programs will include visits from the Cope Environmental Center, the Joseph Moore Museum, the Lincoln High School Band, and painting moon rocks. Weekly prizes will be given to readers, and participants may enter drawings for larger prizes after the program concludes on July 31st. We hope to welcome you on board the library space ship, on a course through the Andromeda Galaxy to faraway, exotic Planet READ!
