Jumping into June!
Updated: Jun 21, 2022
It's June, and today's hot and humid weather is a reminder that summer arrives this month. Children are getting out of school for summer vacation. Come in and check out our Summer Fun book display. Every one of these books has "Summer" in the title, and each one is available to borrow. (Please check them out! We have other books we can use to fill in any blank spots in the display.)
We are gearing up for our Summer Quest program next month. The theme is Oceans of Possibilities. This fun program will be held on Fridays July 8 through August 5, and includes stories, games, and crafts. Contact the library at 814-634-0512 for more information or to register.
We will also be hosting a Robotics and Electronics STEAM Camp for children age 8 and up, presented by the county library system's STEAM Team. Lunch will be provided at the park across the street. The Summer Youth Cafe lunch is free and open to anyone under 18 regardless of whether they attend the STEAM Camp. Registration for the camp is limited due to space considerations.
Of course, libraries are not just for kids. On June 16 at 2 p.m., we will be continuing our Mental Health discussion series with a discussion of Mental and Emotional Wellness for Older Adults. The "golden years" are not always smooth sailing. Let's discuss how to navigate the changes and challenges we face as we age.
Our June book discussion will be held on June 30 at 7 p.m. here at the library. We are making another attempt to discuss (Don't) Call Me Crazy: 33 Voices Start the Conversation About Mental Health, but this time we've invited adults to the discussion. Teens are welcome to this session, too. We know the teen session we scheduled last month had a schedule conflict for many young people.
The books for the discussion were funded through a grant: “Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).”
