Just a Reminder

Our next special program for adults will be The Learning Tree: Gordon Parks and other African American Artists from Kansas presented by Pittsburg musician, Lemuel Sheppard. The program will include blues, folk songs, spirituals and songs from the civil rights movement. It is for adults 18 and over. Join us in the library's multipurpose room on Friday, June 22 at 7pm.
There is an activity or event for some age group happening nearly every day this summer. Pictures are taken and added to the flickr site or the blog on a daily basis. Keep your eyes open, because you may just see a familiar face.

Just Me and My Dad

Yesterday was the second story time of the summer. Miss Ellynne read "Just Me and My Dad" by Mercer Mayer in celebration of Father's Day this coming Sunday. Miss Julie snapped every child's picture for their take home puzzle-piece picture frame to give to their dads. It read"Dad, I love you to pieces."

Summer Story Time

Today was the first story time of the summer and come to think of it, the first event in our summer reading program. On Thursday at 2pm Young Adults ages 12-18 will watch a mystery movie. There are lots of things happening each week and it’s not too late to come in and pick up a calendar or sign up for any of our programs. Next week Jackie Brogeson from the Safari Museum in Chanute will talk with kids 11- 14 about her trip to Transylvania and share what she learned about the legend of Dracula. Children’s musician Dennis Warner will perform on Tuesday followed by story times on Wednesday and dominoes for adults on Thursday. Be sure to check out the library Flickr account to see pictures all summer long.
