Summer of Play in full swing

Week six of the Summer of Play is in full swing as we discover heroes great and small through our week of super heroic fun.

Week six of the Summer of Play is in full swing as we discover heroes great and small through our week of super heroic fun. There are only two weeks left in the summer program at the library so time is running out—join us today!

This week, Thursday sees kids of all ages letting their inner comic book artist out as they create their own comic strips. And on Friday after Read and Rhyme we will be joined by some local heroes.

Monday marks the beginning of the penultimate week of fun with Science Week. All age groups will be racing cork boats as well as making super-crazy structures out of marshmallows and toothpicks.

Teens will get to explore the world of Arduino, a micro controller that can do more than you ever imagined, and Raspberry Pi, a computer you can hold in the palm of your hand.

Tuesday brings Summer Sound Sessions in for Kerplunk (ages 6-8). Then we’ll enjoy a friendly competition with elastic car races. Teens are welcome to join us for Tuesday Gaming.

Wednesday takes us out to Rochon Sands for more elastic car races as well as games galore. In the afternoon we’ll design science experiments during Make & Create. And later on, have books and snacks at our teen book club.

Slime it up on Thursday with some ooey-gooey fun!

Friday brings Read & Rhyme for ages 0-5 followed by a visit from a mobile planetarium. Discover the stars at the library!

Monday brings us to our final week, Games Week!

Ages 6-8 and 9-12 can join us for giant Jenga and corn hole fun! Teens are invited to come play with our LittleBits including the Arduino bit to create a game of Pong and develop an Etch-a-Sketch.

On Tuesday Summer Sounds Sessions occur for the final time as well as Minute-to-Win-It activities for all. The final teen gaming night of the summer will also be taking place.

Wednesday’s Rochon Sands activities are a Cup and Ball game craft with prizes. Join us at Make & Create to play with LittleBits and Makey Makey. Food and fun awaits teens at our final book club.

Thursday will be our wrap up parties. Join us for prize draws and a trip to the spray park! Remember to bring your towels!
