Summer Reading has begun. We have lots of fun programs and performers planned. For details, visit midyorklib.org/morrisville/events/summer-reading-2019/. If the kids read 1,100 hours collectively, they get to COLOR the Library Manager at graduation.
Be sure to join us for our Monday Out of this World Space Matinees. Come join us for some “space-y” movie on Mondays July 29, Aug. 5 and 12 at 2 p.m. We provide the popcorn; bring your own beverage. Due to licensing regulations, we cannot post titles, but check out our website for the complete list this summer.
Bring your preschool child (ages 2-5) for our summer time story hour Tuesday, July 30, at 10 a.m. We will be reading stories about “Sky Full of Stars.” Make a craft, hear some stories and more. (If you cannot make that day, join us Aug. 6 for “Blast off to Reading.”)
This Friday, July 26, we will be having a program called, “What Happens in the Night.” at 6:30 p.m. Come join in our night light parade, make an edible campfire and more.
On Wednesday, July 31, come join us for Out of this World Magic at 6:30 p.m. Super Silly Circus, Out of this World Magic will blow the minds of our audience. It will feature such illusions as the Umbrella Box, where we will stick 21 Umbrellas into a simple cardboard box containing a real live assistant (Teeny the Clown), Head in Orbit, The 4-Legged Man, all that and more, more magic, more illusions and more fun. Fun for the entire family.
Friday, Aug. 2, join us for “To the Milky Way and Beyond” at 6:30 p.m. Join us for some intergalactic adventures as we travel beyond the Milky Way. Crafts, games and fun will be had.
On Wednesday, Aug. 7, Out of the Cage Pet Mobile will be here at 6:30 p.m. Join Jennifer Clark as she brings her traveling exotic petting zoo to our library. She will be bringing six different animals to learn about, as well as see and touch.
Friday, Aug. 9, join us for “Under the Stars/Magic in the Sky” at 6:30 p.m. Come join us as we have fun with stars and the magic that is in our sky – games, a craft and more.
Summer Reading Ends at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9. All kids need to get their records in at the library and make sure you have read at least 10 hours. Adults need to turn in all their book reviews, too.
Did you know we have an Excess Crops Swap at the library? Drop off any extra produce you grew/purchased etc. that you don’t think you will finish before it goes bad. Look and see what is already there and if you like something, take it. The basket is in the entry so come check it out (drop off stuff) today.
We started our summer hours, so we will be closed Saturdays through Labor Day. We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 8 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
