Books-n-Bits – The Douglas County Public Library

We are excited to tell you about several events going on at the Douglas County Public Library during June. We are thrilled to have magician Marty Hahne back to perform for children and “Out of This World” magic show Thursday, June 6 at 10 a.m. We are happy to be included in this year’s 2500 Miles of Arts and Culture and we will be welcoming local resident Kathy Reser to the library Tuesday, June 11 at 7 p.m. and Marsha Thauwald Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m. Both of these ladies will be sharing stories of yesterday. Each of them presented programs at the library last year and we really enjoyed them. I know you will, too. Mark your calendar now and join us at the library. 

On Thursday, June 20 at 10 a.m. we are happy to have some new performers visit from the Walking Stick Studio who will present a puppet show for children called “Monkeys on Mars.” This is sure to be a hit with the kids. And we are starting our summer reading programs for children ages 3 through teens with lots of stories, crafts, games, and give-aways planned. Call the library at 683-5633 to register for the summer reading programs.
