Summer reading is just around the corner! Summer is Kirkwood Public Library’s favorite time of year, as the staff loves to see children, teens and adults from the community READING! This year’s program will start with Summer Reading Kick-Off Day on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., and will run through Aug. 12.
This year it’s all about music and celebration with the “Libraries Rock” theme. The library will host festivities throughout the Kick-Off Day that will appeal to the whole family! Families can cool off with lemonade courtesy Raising Cane’s and ice cream from Culver’s, rock out to the Maple Jam Band and play with the Bubble Bus from 10 a.m.-noon, enjoy face painting and balloon artists from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., and of course sign up for the summer reading program!
