Library Programs for Kids

"Oceans of Possibilities" Summer Library Program

Get your Summer Library Program bag starting Wednesday, June 1! Just stop by the library to pick up your bag and get started. For children from birth – 5th grade, inside your bag you will find: 2 Activity Logs, a coloring sheet, a bookmark, stickers, a temporary tattoo, plus prize passes! We also have Summer Library Program bags filled with goodies for students in 6th – 12th grade.

Readers of all ages can sign up online for Beanstack, beginning June 1, and join our Summer Reading Challenge. The Friends of the Black Earth Library will donate $1 to a library project for every Activity Log finished and every Beanstack Badge earned. Plus you can vote for the project you would like the donations to go toward supporting. Vote here!
