Just a reminder that the Delaware County District Library will close at 5:00 p.m. on July 3 and remain closed on July 4, in observance of the Fourth of July.
Watch for Library staff and vehicles in the Ostrander, Delaware and Orange Township parades!
I hope you and your family are signed up for the Delaware County District Library’s Summer Reading Program, “Dig Into Reading!” Reading with your kids over the summer is the best way to keep their reading skills sharp, and to prevent them from falling behind over the next few weeks.
To make reading even more fun, bring your kids to these great programs at the Library this week:
Gator Dave –June 25 at the Orange Branch at 6:30 p.m. Gator Dave will bring a variety of animals he has rescued, possibly including snakes, alligators, tarantulas, owls, cockroaches, hedgehogs and more. He has over 15 years of experience working with zoos and educating children.
Ohio Nature Education–June 25 at the Delaware Branch at 7:00 p.m. Ohio Nature Education programs include live animals and collections of study skins, nests and other natural materials to get audiences excited about nature! Get ready for an interactive program that will have you on the edge of your seats.
Mini-Golf in the Library–June 26 at the Ostrander Branch at 1:00 p.m. For kids 9-11. Practice your mini-golfing skills as we “putter” around a unique Library course. And at 4:00 p.m. for teens.
History to Go–June 26 at the Delaware Branch at 2:00 p.m. For kids 9-11. Ohio history comes to life with History to Go! Ohio Historical Society staff and volunteers will bring hands-on reproduction items, education collections, and props, literally bringing the museum exhibits to us at the Library!
The Turtle Lady–June 27 at the Powell Branch at 4:30 p.m. Laugh and learn with the Turtle Lady (Nancy Lockard) as she shares her passion for turtles. Participants will get plenty of touching time with more than 20 turtles, bearded dragons, corn snakes and an amphibian or two.
Ohio Machine Lacrosse–June 27 at the Orange Branch at 6:30 p.m. Come meet players from Central Ohio’s one-and-only professional lacrosse team, The Ohio Machine! The players will give you hands-on tips for what the equipment does, how to play, and they’ll pose for pictures and autographs with the whole family.
See all of the Library’s programs offered this summer in “Check It Out!” our quarterly newsletter, or on our web site on the “Event’s” page.
International gold medalist juggler Matt Jergens has been making audiences laugh for over eighteen years. He has thrilled and captivated audiences with his high-energy show of comedy and juggling. In addition to outstanding juggling, he asks children to help with tricks and stunts.
Join him tonight at the Delaware County District Library’s Main Branch at 7:00 p.m. for a joyful program filled with laughter, fun, and amazing juggling.
And don’t forget to stop by the Next Chapter Cafe coffee shop for a hot or cold drink to enjoy while you’re enjoying Matt’s magnificent performance.
Matt Jergens is amazing, funny and engaging!
Summer Reading at the Delaware County District Library begins on Saturday, June 8, 2013. Unlike previous years, this year we won’t be having kick off parties–you can simply drop by any Library location tomorrow (or any time during the next 6 weeks) to register to “Dig Into Reading” this summer. Check the Library’s web site for the great line up of programs that the children’s staff have planned for babies, toddlers, tweens, teens and families.
And we adults don’t need to be left out, either. You can register for the Adult Summer Reading program at the Library’s web site beginning June 8. Read three books and your name will be entered into a weekly drawing for some great prizes from our local merchants.
It’s going to be a great summer for readers (and listeners!) of all ages filled with great books and incredible programs. And it all starts Saturday, June 8th!
