2019 SRC Launch Party

Family Program
Join us and some of our favorite Summer Reading Club performer pals at this summer Kick-off! Guests include musician Zak Morgan and magician Erica Carlson! COSI will also be there as well as ice cream!

This will officially “launch” our 2019 Summer Reading Club. The theme this summer is “A Universe of Stories” and we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Our library patrons know that the Summer Reading Club is not only filled with great book recommendations and reading lists, but also excellent performers and activities for the whole family.

Stop by the Orange Branch Library between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. to celebrate the start of summer with some of our favorite performer pals. Musician Zak Morgan is coming and bringing his guitar for some singing, dancing and laughing. With silly songs like “When Bullfrogs Croak” and “The Case of the Dry Markers,” Zak is a mainstay among our summer performers and he always entertains.

Erica Carlson will be back with her airbrush tattoos and balloon art. Erica debuted her airbrush tattoos at our 2018 Great GeekFest and they were a huge hit among all attendees. She also showed off her balloon art skills to those who were at the Koo Koo Kanga Roo performance in 2017.

Your favorite Star Wars characters will roam the building and the Imagination Garden posing for photo ops and answering your questions of the Force (or the Dark Side). COSI and Engineered Beginnings will show other examples of “force” with their science demonstrations.

Sticky Fingers Ice Cream Parlor from Galena on Cheshire Road will be bringing ice cream snacks for everyone.

Crafts, scavenger hunts, photo ops, a storytime video from space and more are just the beginning of what you can expect. Help us blast off into this summer of fun.
