Summer Reading Begins!
The Great Falls Public Library’s Youth Services Department announces the beginning of the Summer Reading Program for children through 18 years of age on June 16. The summer reading program includes a variety of special activities, programs and challenges for youth to encourage reading and literacy, and to promote the notion that reading is fun as well as educational. Participants are awarded for completion of reading challenges and are eligible for drawing prizes.
The program runs through the month of July. All activities and events are free. The June programs are listed below. Contact Youth Services Librarian Nola Huey for more information at 453-0349, and stop into the library for a detailed listing of the guidelines for each age group.
Book Tasting Party
Come to the Great Falls Public Library anytime in June to pick up your “blind date”. You will choose an undisclosed, wrapped book with a book tasting menu inside. Read this book and come back to the library on Thursday, July 23, 7:00 PM, to join other party-goers and discuss your “date” at the book tasting party. Light refreshments will be served. The library’s Page Forward Book Discussion groups are hosting this event. For
more information call 453-0349.
Art @ the Library
The Great Falls Public Library is hosting an art exhibit by eclectic artist Alma Winberry during the months of June and July. Alma’s art is an eclectic blend of paintings, sculptures, and unique one-of-a-kind pieces. No medium is taboo to Alma, who uses recycled material to create some of her whimsical sculptures. In an exhibit by Alma you may see fabric art, paper sculptures, pieces made of old car doors, hats, paintings, and more. With Alma every exhibit is as unique as her art. This year’s exhibit will feature a special section of talking sticks decorated by various community members. Along with unique designs, each talking stick will also have its own story.
