Youth Services Thursday Specials

The start of summer is definitely underway.  I do hope you are enjoying your summer so far; I know I am!  Did you know that each summer the Youth Services department offers fun family programming on Thursday afternoons at 1 PM?  Yep, back in February we started booking performers that we thought you would enjoy.  It's a difficult task because there are so many great performers to choose from in our local area. Perhaps you join us in the past two weeks to see the magic of Gary Kantor or the puppetry of Jan's Clans?  Well, I'm here to tell you about our remaining line up of great shows or classes we will be offering on Thursday afternoons.

On June 29th, cartoonist Mark Anderson will be offering drawing classes for children in Grades 2-6.  Come learn how to draw from a master who has had cartoons published in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Saturday Evening Post and Funny Times, just to name a few (there are a lot more!).  Check out some of his cartoons on his website Andertoons.  Registration starts June 12th.

And the fun just continues into July.  Movie Madness Double Feature will happen on Thursday, July 6th.  It's just like going to the drive in but without the bugs!  Bring a blanket if you like to lay down to watch movies (I know I do), or we will have chairs if you prefer theater seating (sorry our seats don't recline).  Also bring a beverage and we will supply the popcorn!  Movies titles to be announced a few days before the showing (it's a surprise!) No registration required, just drop in and stay for just one or both movies!

On July 13 we are bringing the ZOO to YOU!  Join us as Cosley Zoo
presents Zoo to YOU: Reptiles.  I find reptiles fascinating as I believe most children do, but I don't want to touch one!  The zookeepers will help us determine what is fact and what is fiction about reptiles as you meet some of them that reside at Cosley Zoo.  You don't want to miss this one!  Registration starts June 26th!

Two more July shows to go and they are worth the wait!  Chris McBrien is coming on July 20th.  If you've ever seen Chris here at the library before, you know that you'll be laughing the whole time you are here.  Chris treats us to a show filled with puppets (he's a ventriloquist), comedy and magic.  It's fun and laughs for all ages.  Registration for this show begins on July 3rd. 

And finally (I'm really excited about this one!), we are bringing
back Wendy and DB!  For those of you who joined us for Celebrate the Seasons, you'll remember how fantastic this trio was!  Their songs are fun for the whole family as audience participation is required!  You are going to want to participate, believe me as I experienced it myself and I wouldn't lie to you! What a great way  to close out our Thursday Summer Specials.  Open registration for this program happens on July 10th.

Wow!  We are sure going to be busy this summer with great shows and classes.  Please make sure you join us for at least one of them (but I'm hoping to see you at all of them!).
