Summer means Reading and Fun-filled Programs @ your Library
Summer at the Safety Harbor Library means youth programs galore, summer reading, crafts, and beating the heat at our Terrific Tuesday programs and Wednesday morning story times. We have a jam packed schedule of summer events for kids that will make any parent or caregiver a happy camper.
Our youth Summer Reading Kick-Off Party is Saturday, June 4, from 11:00 – 4:00 pm. Drop in at any time and stay as long as you’d like. Children can join our summer reading program, get their reading log, receive a free book, play games, and create crafts. (If you can’t make our kick-off, don’t worry, just come to the Youth Department and sign up later.)
Our Terrific Tuesday youth programs from drumming to theatre, magic to puppet shows and more, begin June 14 at 1:00 pm and run through July 19. These programs are made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Library. On Saturday, July 30 at 1:00 pm, celebrate your summer reading accomplishments at our End of Summer Reading program with a performance by the Hoola Monsters.
