Our summer programs for kids, teens, and adults begin Wednesday, June 1 and continue through Saturday, August 20!
Through the Summer Adventure program, kids ages 0-11 can read, learn, listen, and explore with an alien friend, Zorb. This flexible program can be tailored to each children’s interests and learning needs.
Teens ages 12-18 can Level Up! their summer with a video game-themed program that promotes literacy of all kinds, including reading, crafting, cooking, and gaming.
Adults can get in on the fun too. With the 10,000 Experiences at Your Library program, participants can explore the community and take home a snazzy prize.
For each program, participants complete activities on a game card, then return their game card to the library to collect a reward. Each person who completes a game card will also be entered in a drawing for the chance to win grand prizes like activity kits, Washington County Parks passes, puzzles, and more.
Library staff are also planning expanded programs and entertainers inside and outside the library.
Popular performers visiting Washington County Library this summer include Snake Discovery, the Brodini Comedy Magic Show, the Jolly Pops, and more. Librarians will also be visiting Washington County Parks, hosting storytimes at local library branches, sharing take home activity kits, and more.
All programs are free and open to the public, although some require registration.
Summer at Your Library is brought to you by Washington County Library, Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA), and the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Additional sponsors include KARE 11, the Star Tribune, the Minnesota State Fair, and the Minnesota Twins.
