At the Library
As the school year quickly draws to a close, we are preparing for our busiest time of the year. Summer Reading club plans have been in the works since January, and it’s now time for us to kick it in gear. We are planning programs for all ages from toddler to adults. Registration will continue through the end of May, and the fun will kick off on June 3. Special events will include Science Center of Des Moines, Dan Wardell from IPTV, Mad Science, Chasing for Life storm chasers, Bubble Wonders, and more.
The library will also host Read Around the Square as part of Washington’s 175th celebration on June 3. We are registering readers to sit and read on one of the benches located on each side of the square. Anyone who is interested can register at several business locations on the square, or at the library.
All events are free and open to the public, so plan to join us at the library for some good old summer fun!
The following new materials are available.
