Message from the Director
Summer Reading encourages all of us, from young children to senior citizens, to make time for reading in our lives during the summer months. This year, our programing theme centers around music and the idea that Libraries Rock! Each year the Library staff spends months preparing for our signature series of events, the Summer Reading Program. I think you’ll agree that Libraries (and Huron Librarians) Rock after reading through our programs offered in the following pages. I am happy to highlight a few new collections and resources we are unveiling this summer:
- The Library has acquired a collection of ukuleles for loan. These simple string instruments will have you playing along with your favorite songs. If you already play or want to learn, join us on Wednesday, June 20 for the Open String Jam to meet local musicians.
- We are excited to announce a collection of Launchpad tablets from Playaway. These tablets for children are curated with educational apps on important subjects like reading, math, and science. Pre-loaded and not connected to the internet, the tablets are a safe and smart choice for screen time.
- Back by popular demand, we are excited to announce the return of digital magazines from OverDrive. We will be acquiring 50 periodicals through our partnership with Clevnet that can be checked out and read on the OverDrive Libby App.
For more information on these new services, please see page 10 of our newsletter, or call the Library.
We look forward to sharing a summer filled with musical discoveries,
