Sloan Public Library

"A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life."  - Henry Ward Beecher

We couldn't agree more.  Come visit our library.  A quiet place to study, relax, work or simply escape in a good book.  It's fun, the old fashioned way.

SLOAN PUBLIC LIBRARY NEWS:

The Sloan Public Library will have their annual summer reading program again this year, starting on July  12th. The theme this year is “Libraries Rock!” and there will be programs and activities planned all summer around this theme. There will be a kickoff on Sunday, June 24th from 4pm-6pm on the west side of the library. We’ll have hotdogs, chips and drinks, games and music. Library staff will be on hand if you have any questions about any of the activities.

The Henry Doorly Zoo will be here on July 11th at 11:00 am and will be bringing a few animals for everyone to see.

Summer reading program starts on Thursday, July 12th at 9:30 am for 2-3 year olds, 10:00 am will be the 4-6-year-old group, 11:00 am will be 7 – 11-year-old group, and 1:00 pm will be the 12 and up teen group.

After the first week, we will then have summer reading on Wednesdays, July 18th, 25th and the last summer reading program will be on August 1st. All times will be the same as above.

Some of the activities we will be doing: rock painting, STEM activities, and as a reward for hitting reading goals, we will have a Nerf dart game, water balloon fight, and an Escape Room, so everyone is encouraged to attend all summer reading sessions, activities and programs to earn extra minutes! Full schedules are available at the library and will also be available at our summer reading kickoff, so stop and get one if your child did not bring one home from school.

The last program we will have to end the summer with will be a program by Northeast Community College. Anthony Beardslee, instructor in the Audio and Recording Technology and Production program will be here to talk about the program and about music and the recording process. This should be a really fun program for kids and adults alike! This will be on August 16th at 1:30 pm at the library.
