Tween Club: Watergun Tie Dye

Meet up and hang out, play games, and craft with your friends. On Friday, July 21 from 3:30-5:30 PM, we are tie dying shirts with waterguns!!! Meet up in the Readers’ Theater, then we’ll head outside to make our tie dye creations! A club just for tweens in grades 3-5, or ages 8-11!  Register for clubs at the children’s desk or call 785-843-3833.

Tail Wagging Readers

On Saturday, July 22 at 10 AM in the Readers’ Theater, practice reading and build reading confidence with a warm, furry friend from Loving Paws Animal Therapy. Bring your own book or choose one at the library. Register for a free 15-minute time slot: 785-843-3833.

Draw Along: Dream and Draw a Better World

On Thursday, July 27  at 11 AM and 2 PM in the Auditorium, your kiddos, family, and friends will complete three refrigerator-ready pictures using elementary art educator Kyle Tiernan’s unique, fail safe approach to teaching kids to draw. Kyle’s shape-by-shape and story-by-story approach to drawing makes the process ridiculously simple for children ages 5-12. You’ll see your children’s artistic self-confidence soar as they leave the program with refrigerator-ready artwork they created and can be proud of. This program was a major hit last summer and with new and different drawing lessons this summer, it’s going to be a lot of fun and we hope you can join us! TWO FREE SHOWS! ALL AGES!
