Summer Programs & Challenges for All Ages!

This summer's Summer Quest theme is "Adventure Begins at Your Library.  Here are just some of the programs we have planned: 

It's not too late to join Ready, Set, Draw, an art class for basic drawing  skills, on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.

Our Summer Quest program for children ages 2-11 will meet at the Paul Fuller Playground on Friday mornings, 10-12, beginning on July 12.  It concludes on August 9 with a picnic sponsored by Somerset Trust Co.  We also have reading challenges for youth 12-17 and for adults, with a chance to win prizes. 

An Antique Bottle Display will be presented by the Laurel Highlands Antique Bottle Club on Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Registration is required for many of these programs.  See our program page for details.
