Summer Reading Program - 2020


Get ready for a summer of fairy tales, folktales, and fantasy!

Although we won’t have onsite programs this year, you can still win free books, prizes, and ice cream!

Just come to the library or give us a call (605-995-8480). We’ll give you a Dairy Queen card, a reading sticker chart, and a bingo card.

New for July and August - Zoom sessions!
Pre-registration required (995-8480).

Wednesday, July 15 - 1:00 pm  
How to Write a Fantasy Adventure Story, led by Jean L.S. Patrick

Wednesday, July 22 - 10:30 am  
How to Make a Torn Paper Collage, led by Sydnie Liedtke, MHS art student. You’ll need glue, scissors, paper, old newspapers & magazines. (Zoom)  All ages, but kids may need an adult or caregiver to help them get started.

Wednesday, July 29 - 1:00 pm  
Book Discussion with Alison McGhee, co-author of the award-winning Bink & Gollie series!  This is going to be so cool! The SD Humanities Council sent us 24 copies of the book. Just come to the library to pick one up so you can read the book ahead of time. It’s great for first-graders & up.  (Zoom)

Coming up in August 
Karen Land, a 3-time Iditarod competitior. Her dog will be on the call, too! (Zoom)

Ms. Jean and Gilly read books, ask questions, tell jokes, and lead activities M-F at 12:30 on Facebook Live.  
Ms.  Jean also leads Online Thursday Storytime each Thursday at 10:30am. (Yep, she uses the Treasure Chest!)
