Launch into the summer with our 2019 Summer Library Program, titled “A Universe of Stories” and themed around space!
The program began June 1 and wraps up July 27. All ages are welcome to participate, and we’ve got a variety of fun activities and events, as well as prizes, to fill the summer.
Summer Stargazing & SLP Kick-off Party
The Andrews, Huntington, Markle, Roanoke and Warren public libraries are joining up with Indiana DNR this June to host a Summer Library Program kick-off party for all Huntington County residents and passers-by! The Summer Stargazing Party will take place Saturday, June 8 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Kil-So-Quah Boat Ramp at Roush Lake in Huntington and is for all ages.
Each library will bring a variety of activities, including hands-on DIY, a three-legged race, corn hole, book walk, life-size tic-tac-toe, and more, and the DNR will provide a limited number of fishing poles for those interested in trying their hand at fishing. A joint-library story time for the entire family will take place at 8 p.m. Residents of all ages are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs, a picnic meal, and their entire family – including leashed pets! Bringing one’s own outdoor grill (using propane or wood) or fishing gear is welcome as well.
This event is free and anyone is welcome to attend, regardless of whether you have a library card or even live in the area.
How It Works
You can sign up for the program now, and reading logs can be picked up at either library. Completing different portions of the reading logs (varies by age) gets you prize drawing entries. Each week there will be a new weekly prize, as well as the opportunity to instead put your entries in for the grand prize, whose entry box will be up all summer.
