Teens-Sign-Painting with Reclaimed Joy

Joy Smith, of Reclaimed Joy, will be here on Monday, July 23  @ 1:30 pm to do a sign-painting class with teens. She has a variety of projects to choose from-something for everyone. This class is for teens 13 plus and limited to 10 participants. Did I mention she is bringing prizes?!!

Joy is an artist who creates unique home decor/outdoor pieces using reclaimed wood. You can see her work on facebook if you search “ReclaimedJoy”. We are super excited to host this event 🙂

Reading Takes You Everywhere: The Grove City Library’s summer reading program for 2018

Reading Takes You Everywhere is this year’s summer reading program for ages 3-17 at the Grove City Public Library. Kids are welcome to sign up anytime from June 1 through the month of August.

Everyone who signs up for the summer reading program will receive a book bag, a bookmark, and a Reading Takes You Everywhere game sheet or a Teen Reading Log.

Kids will earn prizes for reaching spots on the game sheet by reading, attending library events, and being active all summer long.  A variety of small prize choices will be available for reaching these goals.  Kids can play the game over and over again all summer.  Reading all summer is important for school readiness in the fall.

Teens have the option of setting a book reading goal for the summer instead of playing the reading game, earning prizes for reaching milestones along the way.

A number of fun events are planned for this summer.  The Reading Can Take You Anywhere Magic Show with Magic Bob and Lynn Marie will be on Monday, June 18, at 1:30 p.m. in the community room.  You may have seen one of his entertaining shows in the past when he went by the name “Professor Marvel.”  On Friday, June 29, Ralph’s World will present a high-energy family concert at 2:00 p.m.  And KARE 11 meteorologist Belinda Jensen will visit the library on Monday, August 13, at 1:00 p.m. with her Bel the Weather Girl books.

The library will be hosting an Intergenerational Afternoon Tea at South Grove Square Senior Living, in the Oak Dining Room. The tea will be on Tuesday, July 10th at 2 pm. All ages are welcome, but space is limited. Sign up at the library to reserve your spot. Participants are encouraged to wear hats.

There will be a family story hour on Monday, July 9th at 2:30. All ages welcome.

Brick Builders will take place on the fourth Monday of each month from 2:30-4:30 pm, June 25, July 30, and August 27. This is a time for free play with Legos.    Table gaming takes place once a month on the second Thursday of the month from 4-8 p.m.  Participants can bring a game from home or play one of the library’s tabletop games.  A light snack is provided.  This activity is open to all ages but especially popular with teens.  There is no need to sign up for any of these activities.

Teens (age 11-18) can sign up for a tacky art contest taking place on Monday, June 11, from 2:30-3:30. Teens are also invited to take a sign-painting class on July 23 at 1:30 p.m., taught by Joy Smith.  Pre-registration is required for the sign painting with Joy. There will also be a teen event (TBA) on August 20th at 2:30 pm.
