Readers of all ages are challenged to take part in bettering the world around them, as the McPherson Public Library presents, “Build A Better World” 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. All programs and events 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 organic farming, a how-to session on marketing your art online, a program about Eisenhower and the D-Day invasion, tips on back to school health, an Instagram challenge, and a walking tour that will highlight vintage buildings on Main Street.
The youth programming schedule includes age-specific programs and story times, a big truck fair, a visit from the Cosmosphere, a mad science event, a visit from Marty the Reading Magician, the popular Teen Chocolate Olympics, and several additional literacy based events.
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 begins on May 22 for adults and on May 24 for youth. For a detailed look at the calendar of events and program information, please visit www.macpl.org/summer, or call the library at 245-2570. Schedules are also available and can be picked up at the service desk.
