Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.

Drone Camp - Ages 12-15 [12-15] - Monday, August 13th through August 17th from 1:30--3 PM

 

 

To get teens ready for the school year to start, the Parker Williams Branch Library is encouraging the love of science and flight through our Drone Camp.

There will be dancing, drums, and a craft as kids can try out all the different aspects of the Lion Dance. 

Summer Program – Recycled Rhythm [5+] - Wednesday, August 8th at 5:00 PM

 

Buckets, boxes, garbage cans, and more come to life in this stage production, blending dance, music and theatrical elements while educating students on the importance of recycling.

Recycled Rhythm allows students to be creative while discovering the beauty within themselves and the rhythm all around us.

We show the students that you have to use your imagination to create a vision or idea.

Please join us at the Parker Williams Branch Library at 5 PM on Wednesday, August 8th in the Library Community Room.
