Summer School Party!

Saturday, June 1, 10 am to noon, in the Library parking lot, we’re formally kicking off summer with the Library’s own version of “Summer School”.

No more homework, no more text books, just experts from around town to teach you some fun DIY.  Want to know how to change a tire?   Sing the new KU Fight song? Sink the perfect putt? Learn gardening, make art with dead fish, speak in a foreign language, play the fiddle, and lots of other cool things. We are partnering with tons of awesome community organizations to teach you some fun new skills to show off to your friends. Check out the full list of activities here.

In case of rain, come over to the Hobbs Taylor Lofts, just south of the Library.

Special thanks to Douglas County Community Foundation and Kansas Health Foundation for their support of the library and summer reading.

    Will this happen in the parking lot of the old library or the new one?

      Hi Melissa,

      It will take place in the parking lot of our current location, the old Borders building, at 7th and New Hampshire.

    Is this event only for kids? (Please say no!)
