We'll be kicking off the Summer Reading Clubs on Tuesday, June 9 with Science Tellers! Science Tellers puts an interactive twist to storytelling and science in two exciting programs: Dragons: Return of the Ice Sorceress for Grades K and up and Dragons Jr. for Ages Pre-K and up!

Summer Reading officially begins on June 15 and runs through through August 15!

We have reading logs on our website for both Independent Readers and Read to Me Readers ! We also have Summer Reading for Adults and Tweens and Teens !

Print out the reading logs and keep track of your progress. You may either submit the form or take a picture for prize redemption! Prizes may be picked up in the beginning of September.
The Frick Collection
"Cocktails with a Curator"
Fridays at 5:00 pm

The Frick Collection has been sponsoring some amazing weekly cultural events during their closure. We've been sharing their "Travels with a Curator" on our Facebook page every week where we travel around the world to join a Frick Collection curator on a tour of a famous cultural site.

We're also loving their "Cocktails with a Curator" series where one of the Frick's curators discusses a work of art accompanied by a recommended signature cocktail . Audiences under 21 are encouraged to join with a non-alcoholic drink!
