Welcome to Summer

Written by published on Wed, 06/17/2015 - 7:10pm

With summer coming into full swing, there is no better time to check out all the things that the library has to offer.  Sign up for Summer Library Club- this year is all about Escaping the Ordinary and our revisions to this classic program include the addition of activities to be completed as you read.  While many of the activities can be completed at home, the library has some great options that are worth checking out.  From tried and true programs like Red, White and Bike to new experiences like our DIY Picnic baskets, Sculpture Fun for kids, and Make Your Own Ice Cream- there is no shortage of events to fill your calendar.  So come on in, cool off, and learn something new.

A complete list of programs can be found online here and printed in our Library Link quarterly guide available in all UAPL libraries.
