Wrapping up Summer at the Central Library

We are wrapping up a summer full of fun, here at the Central Library! We had 157 kids enter our Summer Reading Club, and around 500 total attendees at our weekly Reading Club programs…well done kids. Congratulations on your reading efforts and way to eliminate that “brain drain” that can occur over the summer months (your teachers will be so proud!!)

As we look forward to fall and the return of our regular story times (check our website for days and times), we will be welcoming new storytellers here at the Central Library, so please come down and meet them and join them for fun stories, songs and flannel board fun.  We will also be doing a story time at the Thursday Wisner Farmer’s Market from 11:00-11:45 through the end of August.

We are having a family movie day on Wed. Aug. 28 at 2:00!  Come and view “Oz, The Great and Powerful” while enjoying a snack.  On Friday, Aug. 30, local author Maureen Wright will be here reading her great stories and she’ll bring along a craft for the kids…especially suited for ages 2-8. No registration is required for either event and both are free!
