Summer Reading


Creek Reads!
Summer Reading

Yes, we're open!  The TCMS library will be open on the following dates from 11-2 for checkout and fun activities from 12-1!

Wednesday, June 15 - Beauty and Building

Stop by to check out summer reading material, have your fingernails painted, and work on an awesome Lego creation to be displayed in the library.

Monday, June 27 - Movement Monday: Yoga and Poi in the library

Learn some simple Yoga poses that will culminate in the yoga sequence “Salutation to the Sun”.   Then, experiment with Poi Spinning!  Poi is a really fun movement form of spinning balls or weights at the end of cords.  Some people describe it as dance + juggling + tai chi.  Please dress comfortably and be ready for relaxation and fun!

Wednesday, July 13: Crafting Craziness!

Create a fun summer craft in the new Design Lab!

The library will also be open on August 2 during Titan Bash!  More information about Titan Bash will be coming over the summer!

Remember: Kids are maturing at different rates.  Not every book is appropriate for every child at every age.  When choosing a book, use wisdom--do not read a book that is inappropriate for you or your family.  When choosing and reading a book, talk to your parent/guardian about what you are reading!
