Kids of all ages are invited to the library to take part in the 2017 Summer Reading Program. It features many events from every branch library with the theme, “Build a Better World” with activities that include crafts, science experiments, books, and more! Here are a few summer reading program events coming up:
- On Wednesday, July 19th at 2pm, Invent a Better World with the Hands On Science Museum at the North Asheville Library. The Hands On Museum Museum in Hendersonville will visit to offer engaging interactive exhibits that teach in a fun, hands-on way.
- On Saturday, July 22 at the Oakley/South Asheville Library, discover your inner sleuth with a Solve It Spy Camp. Break the codes, conquer the laser maze, and stop the evil Dr. Sinister before he can take over the world.
- On Tuesday, July 25 at 2pm, join the Fairview library for Snakes Alive with Rom Cromer. You’ll have an exciting hands-on opportunity to experience a variety of gentle reptiles with Cromer’s expertise, humor, and educational presentation.
- Finally on Thursday, July 27 at 11am, join the Leicester Library for a presentation on Incredible Insects. Be prepared to catch specimens, make observations, and learn a lot of interesting entomology facts.
Now those are just a few of the events sponsored by the library during the Summer Reading Program. If you’re a parent looking for something fun for their child to do over the summer, definitely visit buncombecounty.org/library to check out some of these events.
