Readers of all ages are in for an exciting summer at the McPherson Public Library, as summer reading programs and events are centered on the theme, “Libraries Rock!” 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 the insurgence of fake news, the rich musical history of McPherson, and an opportunity to determine the value of antique books during the Rare Books Roadshow. Plus, the first meeting of the Career Connect professional development group will be held in August, as well as a summer reading marathon. Plus, don’t miss the Used Book Sale, scheduled for June 1st through 3rd.
The youth programming schedule includes age-specific programs and story times, fun with Dan Dan the Magic Man, a visit from the Cosmosphere, a mad science event, Australia-themed Didgeridoo Down Under show, 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 23 for all ages. For more information, please visit www.macpl.org/summer, or call the library at 245-2570. Schedules are also available in the library and can be picked up at the service desk.
