Wrapping up One World, Many Stories

Well, it might not hold true to the calendar, but in library land, this week signals the end of summer.  We've had a great two months packed with lots of travel-themed programming, including last week's visit by hilarious magician, Joseph Fingerhut of St. Louis- based troupe Abra-Kid-Abra...

Thanks to all the kids and families who made One World, Many Stories- Summer Program 2011 an amazing time!

If you still have July content entries floating around, be sure to get them to your local library's front desk before August 1st.  If you win, you'll get your picture in the paper and score a cool prize, like a collapsible telescope or a tennis shoe keychain.

And don't forget about fall programming- the library doesn't stop when school starts!  This year, our theme is "The Four Seasons", and we have lots of fun activities planned, like painting with colored ice cubes and making sculptures out of gumdrops. 

Visit the front desk of your library for more details about upcoming programs, or check back at this blog or on the library's website at under the "Programs and Events" tab.

Soak up the rest of the summer, and keep reading!!
