Our summer reading program, “Dig Into Reading” is in full swing!  It’s not too late to sign up if you haven’t already!  It runs until Friday August 16.  We are also having an adult summer reading program again this year too!  So anyone from ages 1 on can have fun with us this summer!  Hope to see you!

This Friday July 26 at 6:30pm, join us for “I Dig Getting Dirty!”  Do you like getting dirty?  How about playing in the dirt and mud? Come to this program and play with mud, dirt and more!  Be sure to dress in old clothes because we are going to get messy!  Parents, we will end the night playing with bubbles too so hopefully we can just be hosed down later!

Join Moreland the Magician as he helps us celebrate “Dig Into Reading!” on Wednesday July 31 at 6:30pm.  ‘Klondike Dave’ is a gold prospector from the Old West who’s sure there’s some sort of treasure buried at our library, and he’s determined to dig it up!  Want to help him find it?  Join him for a show packed with magic, comedy, mystery, puppetry, and more!

Remember the TV show, Fear Factor?  Well we are going to have our own version of it with BUGS!  That’s right; on Friday August 2 at 6:30pm, we will have 3 rounds of fun!  A question and answer round about bugs, an obstacle course and of course, the best round-eating bugs!  Be sure to join us for a ”buggy” good time!

Join us for a two part tie dying event on Monday August 5 and Wednesday August 7 at 6:30pm.  Join Jody Luce as she helps us to create our own tie dye creation!  Please bring in a 100% pre-washed cotton item (i.e.-white handkerchief, t-shirt or other white cotton item.)  This is a two part event so BE sure you can come to both nights to complete your project.  Dress to get messy as well!

Juggling Josh, also known as Joshua Edelman, has been delighting audiences with his unique blend of breathtaking skills and side splitting comedy for over a decade.  He will be here on Friday August 9 at 6:30pm!  His show features the fusion of spellbinding feats, tons of interactive audience participation, and side-splitting comedy. He might even juggle your child!  Bring the family in for a sure to be good time!

We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12pm to 8pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 8pm for the summer.

Our summer reading program, “Dig Into Reading” has begun!  The theme this year is Stop in and sign up this week!  It runs until Friday August 16.  We are also having an adult summer reading program again this year too!  So anyone from ages 1 on can have fun with us this summer!  Hope to see you!

Our annual book sale will be this Friday July 12 from 4-8pm and Saturday July 13 from 9-2pm.  Lots of great deals!  Get some great reads for the summer ahead!  Book Sale will be held in the Library’s program room.

We will be “digging into gardening” on Wednesday July 17 at 6:30pm.  Come join us as we have fun with gardening!  We will be making our own goofy grass heads to take home and as well as doing lots of other fun things too.

Join us for the Out of the Cage, pet mobile on Friday July 19 at 6:30pm.  Jennifer Clark will be bringing 6 different animals to learn about as well as see and touch!  Also, because she is a privately owned company and charges very little for her show because as she says, “we are devoted to extending our love of animals to people of all ages, through educational AND entertaining programs”,  so we will be collecting items for her animals from the start of summer reading until the night of her program.  So if you are interested in donating items to her cause, please call the library (315-684-9130) or stop in and get a copy of the list of things she needs.

Join us on Wednesday July 24 at 6:30pm for “I Dig Underground!”. This program is going to be entertaining as we have fun with things underground-critters, rocks and who knows what else is lurking in the grass and below!  Also, we will be creating our time capsule that night.  If you have something you think we should put in there, bring it and if we agree we will add it to the capsule!  We will be making things to go into it as well!  Then someone remind us in 10 years or more and we can dig it up!

On Friday July 26 at 6:30pm, join us for “I Dig Getting Dirty!”  Do you like getting dirty?  How about playing in the dirt and mud? Come to this program and play with mud, dirt and more!  Be sure to dress in old clothes because we are going to get messy!  Parents, we will end the night playing with bubbles too so hopefully we can just be hosed down later!
