Summer Is Starting!

Summer is here with the June Library Newsletter out on the circulation desk. It’s packed full of programs and information. You’ll find the Children’s Summer Event Calendar inside but there are a few more programs that we’re waiting on confirmation dates so there will be additions to the schedule.

Summer is the perfect time to become an explorer in your own backyard, and what better place to explore than libraries? Our 38 libraries have so much to offer, from local collections to knowledge of their communities, programs for kids and adults, summer reading programs, books, movies, and WIFI.  The CCLS Lovin’ Our Libraries Campaign kicks off June 1st with all 38  libraries participating. Stop in, pick up your map and start your 2023 library road trip!  You’ll find details at each library and on the link

The Neighborhood Meeting Place

This library serves as the main meeting place for friends and neighbors. It’s the place you can convince other gamers to jump into your Roblox game and compete with you. It’s the in-person and not virtual “Chat Room”. We’re the place little would-be engineers can practice bridge building skills with blocks and then  implode it with a single push. You can learn literacy skills by playing with puppets, comradery by sharing food and recipes, cooperation by playing games, teamwork by gaming together and reading skills by accessing our item collection. We’re also the place you can curl up in a big comfy chair and read quietly to your little one. We’re the place that welcomes everyone with things to do and learn even if your main learning style is not through reading. Read the March Ellington Library Newsletter to find out what we have to offer you this month.

There are so many of them and I’m not able to mention them all but here’s a start on that list… Click on the link below to read more in the Ellington Farman library February Newsletter.
