Build a Better World is the theme for this year’s Adult Reading Club. Adults will be able to enter for prizes by reading books and attending programs. We will be offering adult programming every Thursday evening at 7:00 PM during the Summer Reading Club.

Thursday Night Programming

June 22: Knit a Better World; Part One
Knit Lit will participate in the summer reading club by knitting a scarf for the Red Scarf Project. The Red Scarf Project is a call to knitters and crocheters to create a homemade scarf to give to foster children who have aged out of the system and are on their way to college. We will go over the guidelines and hand out some pattern ideas. In addition, if you do not know how to knit but would like to learn, we can teach you! If you are new to Knit Lit, registration is appreciated.

June 29: Build a Trash Masterpiece
Learn how to make a book from recycled paper with Trash Origami. Registration is requested.

July 6: Build a Work of Art
Do you love to color? Create a work of art from adult coloring books provided by the library, or bring one of your own! Registration is requested.

July 13: Build a Better World with Books
