Readers of all ages are challenged to be active and healthy this summer, as the McPherson Public Library presents, “Exercise Your Mind – Read!” during their summer reading program. 

The program is a long-standing tradition at the public library and helps both youth and adults keep reading and literacy in the forefront during the busy summer months. The best part about all the activities, programs and events, is that they are free of charge.

A variety of events for both youth and adults are scheduled. The adult calendar includes informational sessions on diverse topics, including essential oils, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and navigating the Medicaid program in addition to the monthly Writers Workshop.

Also planned is a movie matinee featuring the movie “Rudy,” as well as discussion groups centered around popular TED Talks.   

The youth programming schedule includes age-specific programs and story times, mad science sessions, a visit from the Cosmosphere, a spider walk, and several additional health and wellness activities.

Reading challenges with goals and prizes also will be an active part of the program for all age groups. Participation in the summer reading program is a fun and budget-friendly way to keep the whole family active and reading this summer.

The summer reading program began on May 24 for adults and starts on June 6 for youth.

For a detailed look at the calendar of events, please visit the library website at www.macpl.org, or call them at 245-2570. 

Schedules are also available and can be picked up at the front desk.
