Readers of all ages are invited to take part in the West Liberty Public Library summer library program, “Build a Better World.”

Planned activities include an interactive educational animal program by Wild Times Exotics, a Bicycle Safety Rodeo hosted by the West Liberty Police Department, a community bicycle ride hosted by the Library’s Books, Bytes & Beyond cycle team, Water Rocks! Interactive program hosted by 4-H, an “almost” camp-out at Wapsie Park, and a hands-on opportunity to see the City’s truck brigade and the fire trucks.

Every Wednesday, the library will host stories, crafts and games appropriate for children of all ages.

Throughout the summer, you can track your family reading and earn entries for a variety of prizes and community gift certificates.

Participants will also take special trips through the City of West Liberty to see how the community is building a better world through water and waste treatment. They will be invited to participate in the Deep Lakes Adventure field trip hosted by Muscatine County Conservation.

The summer library program will kick off on Wednesday, June 28 at 10 a.m. with Wild Time Exotics. Come see the animals and then meet the Library staff. We’ll help you get signed up for summer reading and make sure that you find just the books you are looking for to make the most of your summer reading fun.

The 2017 Summer Library Program is open to all ages, adults included. By modeling good reading habits as adults, we create generations of readers who are more informed and engaged with the world around them. Adults, it’s not just for kids! We want the kids to see you checking things out at the circulation desk!

Registration for Build a Better World is now open. You can fill out a form at the library or register online at http://www.wlpl.org/SRP2017. A full calendar of events is available online.

For more information, call the library at 319-627-2084 or visit http://www.wlpl.org.

All programs are free of charge.
