Summer Reading 2020
Imagine Your Story

Summer Reading sign-ups start in the middle of May. Summer Reading begins the week of June 1st and lasts through the end of July. Each week those enrolled in Summer Reading will complete a list of tasks for that week, then the following week check in at the library for a new set of tasks and get a prize for the previous week. The last week of summer reading is a catch up week for anyone who still wants to get prizes! Those who complete six (6) of the check sheets by the end of July will win a variety of prizes.

Can't make it in to pick up your reading activity sheets?

This will be updated with activity sheets as they come out each week starting the week of June 1st. The last week will be a catch up week, so if you've missed a week or two and would like to still complete them for a prize you can do so.

Summer Performers

Throughout Summer Reading there will be performances on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 AM in the community room. All performances are free to attend and open to all ages.

    • June 3rd at 10:00 AM: Richard Renner: the Vodville Klown - "Actor, Juggler, Orangutan, Poet and Fool all describe Richard Renner as he performs his special brand of humor. Whether juggling, unicycling, ropewalking, or creating a zany improvisation, Richard performs with unbounded energy and skill."

    • June 10th at 10:00 AM: Laughing Matters - "We are Jay Cady and Leslie Seifert-Cady, and we have a ball entertaining people. Our shows are full of juggling, mime, magic, improvisation, and duet humor in the vaudeville style."

    • June 24th at 10:00 AM: Mad Science of Kansas City - "Mad Science has franchises located around the world, who bring science education to millions of children each year. Our innovative programs help kids learn about science through our fun after-school programs, preschool programs, in-class workshops, camps, birthday parties and special events. Mad Science encourages scientific literacy in children in an age when science is as vital as reading, writing and arithmetic and we don’t stop there."

    • July 1st: No Performance.

    • July 8th at 10:00 AM: Jefferson Knapp - Jefferson is a local full-time children's book author. He will be giving a presentation about his fantasy series, The Kingdom at the End of the Driveway and other books he has written.

    • July 15th at 10:00 AM: Traveling Lantern Theatre Company - Legends and Myths from Mount Olympus: Whimsical and daring adventures from the ancient civilization by the sea. From their protected perch on Mount Olympus, the gods of ancient Greece spin their magic and subterfuge into fantastic landscapes while they conjure cunning exploits for the humans they choose to meddle with far below. Children become the mountains and the wind as they watch Icarus and Daedalus fly free on wax wings, help tell the story as they witness Ceyx and Alcyone’s love morph into fantasy so they can stay together for all time, and stave off evil with bravery and courage as Perseus battles the snake-headed Medusa and ultimately turns her into stone.

    • July 22nd at 10:00 AM: Mane Stage Maniacs - Campus High School's student improv group. Improv means to "make it up as you go", and that's what we do! We'll do our best to make you laugh!

Summer Movies

During the summer our Monday Night Movies are geared towards kids and in line with the theme of the Summer Reading Program. Movies are weekly on Mondays and they start at 6:00 PM. Then on Tuesdays, we will have a matinee at 2:00 PM of the same movie. Previews are generally left to run so that late arrivals don't miss as much of the movie.
