Looking for something for kids to do this summer?
Head on down to the Minerva Public Library, where the summer theme is 'Build a Better World'. Read books, complete activities, and get your Reading Passport stamped at the library to earn prizes. Children may join the program by registering at the library anytime from now until Aug. 11.
This summer the library is hosting a Makerspace with STEM and art challenges for children ages 6 and up every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 12:30-4 p.m. Students ages 6-11 must be accompanied by an adult. No registration is required for this program. Just stop in and make something.
From July 12-14, visit the Makerspace to create a cardboard car, and then take that car to the library's Drive-In Movie on Tuesday, July 18, 2 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room. All ages will enjoy this "BLOCK" buster hit, featuring a caped crusader from Gotham City who joins forces with other Brick Heroes to battle the Joker. Call the library for more details and the movie title.
Competition is fierce in Minerva's Kitchen Stadium for Teen Iron Chef on Tuesday, July 25, 2 p.m. for incoming 6th through 12th graders. Create delicious dishes and face off against other teen chefs. Teens will have three rounds to incorporate a special ingredient and make something scrumptious. Each dish will be graded by a set of three judges. Registration is required for this event.
Lunch with a Librarian meets this summer on Fridays at noon at Minerva Elementary School. Enjoy a free lunch for children ages 1-18 and only $1 for adults. Learn about a different foreign country each week through books and fun activities.
