We are approaching mid-July, yet there are plenty of fun things to do at Carnegie Public Library! There is still time to read books and win prizes! Last month 470 kids signed up for the Library League, and more than 1,100 kids and families participated in 39 programs! Yowza!

Everyone will want to attend Digeridoo Down Under on Friday, July 12, 11 a.m. at Grace Methodist Church. This show is a unique fusion of Australian music, culture, science and comedy. Expect audience participation! Expect to have fun!

We’ve already enjoyed tours at the Fire Department, Fayette County Airport, Vermeer, Cox Paving, Mt. Sterling Dairy, Fayette County Court House and the MedFlight #9 Helicopter. A huge thank you to all that opened up their doors to welcome us into your businesses! Upcoming are two more tours at the Fayette County Museum on Saturday, July 13 at 1 p.m. and the Fayette County EMS/Life Squad on Saturday, July 20 at 10 a.m.

Check our website at www.cplwcho.org or stop by the library for a calendar to find out what else is happening. Learn more about the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. United Way and Carnegie Public Library have collaborated to bring this outstanding program to Fayette County. It is finally happening! Join us at “Party at the Park” on Tuesday, July 30 at 11 a.m. at the Eyman Park Shelter House. Register your child from birth up to a child’s 5th birthday to receive a free book every month. More details will be forthcoming on this exciting literacy program.

Carnegie Public Library will be hosting a glass blowing event on Aug. 10 downtown at 1 p.m. during the Art in the Square Festival. Neusole Glassworks from Cincinnati will be here to demonstrate different techniques of glassblowing.

Teens and adults at both Carnegie and Jeffersonville can participate in the fun and win prizes for reading!

Slow down, jump in a hammock, read a terrific book you can’t put down, then take a snooze. Chill out during the hot, hazy, lazy days of summer! Pop in an audio book on a road trip. Order all your “beach reads” on our book app, Libby or OverDrive. Bring the kids in to attend a program, join “Curious Minds” for adults. Watch a movie, build a Lego rocket, play with robotic toys, put together a puzzle, make a craft, find a cozy corner and read, browse the magazine section, stroll through our garden, chat with staff about the next great read, it’s all happening @ your library!
