Upcoming Events at Arcanum Public Library

Summer is in full swing at the Arcanum Public Library. Kids and adults alike have had numerous activities to enjoy, with the promise of more to come. Read on for more information, and there is enough planned to keep anyone from being bored for the rest of the summer!

You can still register for the Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is “Every Hero Has a Story”. We are learning all about everyday heroes, Ohio heroes, Superheroes, and how each person can become a hero. Just drop in, and fill out a form. It is never too late to encourage kids (and adults) to keep up with reading.

We have four more storytime days planned through the end of summer. Storytime is our very popular activity for those kids up to preschool age to come listen to stories, make a craft, and sing songs. On Monday, June 29th, July 6th, and July 20th there will be two sessions each day. The first begins at 10:00am, with the second following at 11:00am. On Monday, July 13th, there will be only one session, starting at 10:00am. There will be a special guest here at the library that day for the kids to meet. You can pick up a calendar of the Summer Storytime Schedule at the library.

On Tuesdays, the library has been holding Heroes In Training (H.I.T.) lessons for kids from kindergarten age and up. The sessions begin at 10:00 am and last about an hour. There are crafts, games, and lots of activities with a hero theme to enjoy! There are four sessions left for the summer. Tuesday, June 30th, July 7th, 14th, and 21st.

We have three movie dates left for the summer. There are two movies each day, with the first movie showing at 10:00am, and the second starting at 2:00pm. Popcorn is served at all showings! On Wednesday, July 1st, the first movie will be Balto, the second will be Thor. On Wednesday, July 15th, the first movie will be The Incredible Mr. Limpet, and the second movie will be Iron Man II. On Wednesday, July 22nd, the first movie will be The Rescuers, and the second will be The Avengers.

We also have some extra special programs planned during July. On Wednesday, July 8th, the Southwestern Ohio Search and Rescue group will be here at 10:00 to present a few of their rescue dogs and answer questions about what they do. This event is for all ages. Come and see some of our local furry, four-footed heroes!

On Thursday, July 9th, we will be hosting a card game day. There are so many games that can be played with an ordinary deck of cards. Come learn a new one, play one you know, or teach someone else how to play. This drop-in event will run from 10:00am until 2:00pm.

On Thursday, July 16th, the library is hosting their annual drop-in craft day. Supplies for crafts will be set up from 10:00am until 6:30pm. Come and make several crafts to take home.

We also have an event planned for Thursday, July 23rd, featuring some of our local heroes. Firemen, policemen, rescue workers, and more will be here for you to meet. (Time TBA) Stay tuned for more details to come!
