SUMMER READING

Join us for our summer reading  kickoff on June 16! This year our theme is "Every Hero Has a Story."  Kids of all ages are invited to the library to meet some real-live heroes. Please note that our program times are a little different than in past years. Teens and tweens ages 9 and up will meet at 10:30 am in our teen room, and kids ages 0-8 will meet at 11 am in the downstairs meeting room.  We are planning a fun summer of stories and activities for everyone.

 In addition to our regular weekly programs, we have some extra events planned, too.  Are you or someone you know crazy for Legos?  Plan to attend our new Lego club June 24 at 1 pm and see if you can master our building challenges. Do you like family movies?  We will be showing the film Big Hero 6 on June 17 at 1 pm.  This movie is fun for everyone no matter what age they might be.  Check our site regularly to see what other events we have in store this summer!

Adults are encouraged to take part in summer reading, too.  For every book you read, fill out a ticket for a chance to win a prize.  Mengle Memorial Library is here to help your whole family have fun this summer!
