Join us as we start summer reading on June 1st! Rolling registration begins and all the upcoming events that you’ve been waiting for will be unlocked and open for registration. Have your calendar handy in advance and save the dates. We have lots to choose from! Don’t forget that the summer kick-off event starts with ‘Toe Jam Puppet Band’ on Wednesday, June 15th, at 6:30pm. You do not have to be a child to enjoy this zany hilarious variety show. Registration is required and currently available.
CONCERT IN THE *COURTYARD JUNE 16TH: Join us at 6:30pm as Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid have combined their talents to create one of the most potent duo teams in acoustic music. They are both gifted instrumentalists, strong and versatile singers, and prolific songwriters, and are comfortable in a dizzying array of styles of roots and Americana music. They jump from show stopping Celtic jigs and old-time fiddle tunes to house-shaking blues rockers, soaring gospel duets, and achingly beautiful ballads. Reid’s legendary acoustic and slide guitar work make a perfect backdrop for Andersen’s powerful fiddling, and they take turns on lead and harmony vocals to showcase a large and interesting repertoire of original, traditional and contemporary music. They have brought audiences to their feet at folk & bluegrass festivals, clubs, coffeehouses and concert halls across the US and in Europe, and have released 4 highly-acclaimed collaboration recordings.
* In the event of inclement weather this event will be moved indoors.
PAPER MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS: Make a mountain climber! A castle climber! A rock climber! A ninja climber - even a bug climber! Using your own design, see how your climber competes when it really starts climbing! Competition climbing at its best when we finish our designs. This is a summer reading activity for children entering grades K thru 5. Registration is required starting June 1.
T/WEEN *YOGA WITH LISA WISLER: Come try out yoga on Wednesday, June 22nd, from 6:30-8:00pm! Yoga is lots of things. The word means 'union' as in connecting your body and mind. This happens by learning to pay attention to your breathing while you move your body in different ways. It can be gentle or a vigorous workout. In this class you will have a chance to try it out and see for yourself. Come learn, try some moves and ask your questions.
Yoga helps you tap in to the power of your own mind, and can help you relax, focus, stretch, gain strength, and get in touch with your Self...lots of things. But most of all yoga is whatever you want it to be, and it's FUN! Check it out! (If there is enough interest, we may offer a second class to continue exploring new things).
*We scored and are giving away a yoga mat to each of the 15 registered participants (entering grade 5 through age 19 in the fall). Please, ONLY sign up if you are sure you can make it so you don't take a space and mat away from other person. THANK YOU.
HOLIDAY HOURS: We will be closed Memorial Day weekend in its entirety (May 28-30). Please stock up accordingly.
