A UNIVERSE OF STORIES
2019 SUMMER READING PROGRAM THEME

 Readers of all ages will explore all things space this summer as Nesbitt Memorial Public Library presents “A Universe of Stories” during their summer library program. Activities include storytelling, Coding, group games, space-related crafts, art projects, science and engineering experiments, and more.

 Our Kick-off programming begins on Tuesday, June 4 with preschool Storytime at 10:15am. with Carol Girgis as the guest reader.

The Tocker Foundation has generously funded the TAME Trailblazer, an interactive museum on wheels, from 9am to 1pm in front of the Columbus Elementary School. Inside the Trailblazer there are 5 exhibit areas: Energy, Space, Biotechnology, Aerodynamics and Weather. 

At 2pm in the Columbus Elementary Cafeteria will be The Yuck Show. The Yuck Game Show is an energetic science assembly program. The audience is divided into two teams to compete in curriculum-based science games and big, highly visual science demonstrations, with the winning team’s captain getting the ultimate prize . . . SLIME!

The public is invited to come to these free events.

 The 2019 Summer Reading Program is open to young people, ages 3 through 12, with programs, prize drawings, storytimes, a reading club, and weekly special programs. Reading activities and programs are also provided for teens and adults. Registration for “A Universe of Stories” begins on Tuesday, May 28.  For more information, call the library at 979 732-3392 or visit our website, www.columbustexaslibrary.net.
