Capture the Magic

Capture the MagicA Summer Youth Program Coming in July!

The world is filled with magic. It can be found almost everywhere, but it takes a very special person to find it. Join us this summer as we look for magic in places you may not have considered. You need bring along only your imagination to find the unexpected in pictures, words, music and the world of nature which is all around you. These are all waiting for you during July when the library will be filled with fun and the excitement of finding the magic that we can all share.

Opening day is set for Tuesday, July 5th when we will begin a month of fun, discovery and new experiences as we explore the art of creating a picture with just a few well-placed lines, learn how stories can become theater, musical notes can be made into songs, fairytales can come alive and fish can shine in the dark. Part of the magic is the fun we have in discovering everyday things and seeing them in a new way. Your magical summer adventure at the library will lead you to see things differently. The fun is never knowing just what to expect.

Beginning on July 5th, if you are between the ages of 6 and 14, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of each week during July will be devoted to you. In addition to Lemonade Lectures on Tuesdays and Discovery Days on Fridays, each Thursday will be an opportunity to make your own discoveries through crafts and activities. Wednesdays are reserved for “Tales To Be Told” for preschoolers through kindergarten who will hear stories associated with this year’s theme, “Capture the Magic.”

Scheduled activities will be held each day between 10:00 a.m. and noon, unless otherwise noted. Lemonade and cookies will be served after each program, except when a field trip requires lunch.

Registration is required, along with parental approval for all Discover Day events. Children who do not attend the Lemonade Lecture but who wish to join the field trips on Friday will be asked to cover the cost of their admission. Otherwise, participating in all activities is available at no charge.
