Summer Reading is here! Community members of all ages are welcome to take part in our Summer Reading program at the Lyons Falls Library, running from July 6th to August 14th. Through the Stewart’s Holiday Match program, we received a grant to help us have a great summer following this year’s theme “Tails & Tales”!
Every time you read, a dragon gets its scales! We are giving away 5 $20 Stewart’s gift cards to individuals participating in our reading challenge. Gift cards will be given away to specific age brackets, including one for adults. Every 20 minutes of reading logged and turned in at the library equals one entry into the gift card drawing for your age group, and a scale gets colored in on our window dragon mascot! Please turn in all entries to the checkout desk before 11AM on Saturday, August 14th. Visit our dragon in the picture window (around the Gould mansion side of the building from the parking lot) periodically over the summer to watch his scales come in!
Family friendly outdoor programming with a story, craft, and free snack will happen on Saturday mornings between 10:30 and 11:30AM.
A variety of virtual programs will be offered during the week online, including Dungeons & Dragons Chats with regional Dungeon Masters, and virtual storytime. See our Facebook page for dates and times.
On August 7th, we are hosting a visit from the Watertown Zoo with some of their animal ambassadors instead of a story. Please RSVP by calling or visiting the library ahead of time, as attendance is limited to 25 people.
The gift card drawing will be held Saturday, August 14th during our last outdoor program. Local author, Shauna Parkinson, will be joining us for storytime with her original story, “Rhea the Library Dog Finds Her Family.” Rhea herself will also make an appearance! Be sure to wear clothes to get messy in; our craft this day will be water balloon painting and bubble art!
New outdoor seating! With help from the Friends of the Library, and a portion of the Stewart’s Holiday Match funds, we purchased and refurbished 4 park benches. These benches are available as seating for outdoor programming, and for anyone wanting to enjoy the sunshine and the free Wi-Fi outdoors.
Summer Library Safari: Lewis County Libraries have teamed up to offer a Library Safari to patrons looking for an adventure this summer. Pick up a map at your local library, and visit all 12 library locations throughout the county between July 5th and August 31st. Each library has something different to offer and most locations will be handing out a small prize for showing your map!
