Kids! Be sure to look for Lego Club which is back on the first Saturday of each month, beginning Aug. 7 at 10 a.m. for Kindergarten through fifth grade. The Library provides the Legos. Children can make the theme for the month or whatever they like!
The StoryWalk book out at Wock Lake has a fun, interactive component this month. The book is entitled “Wild Symphony” by Dan Brown, and walkers will want to bring their smartphone with them to download the free app using the QR code at the first station. Then while walking and reading the book, walkers can hover their camera over the pages and listen to the beautiful music that goes along with each page.
Non-Fiction Book lovers will be thrilled to attend the Non-Fiction Buy-the-Bag Book Sale on
Aug. 19 (from 3 to 7 p.m.), Aug. 20 and 21 (from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.) to fill up a bag of books for only $3 (the Library provides the bags). All items will be sorted by subject. The books in the regular book sale rooms are regular price and not included in the Buy-the-Bag Sale.
The Aug. activities culminate with a celebration of the Historic Jerseyville City Center Week on Monday, Aug. 23 with an Ice Cream Social co-sponsored by the Jersey County Historical Society. The Library will be hosting Juggling Jeff (the all-time favorite act of our Children’s Librarian) who will provide a family friendly interactive comedy juggling show from 6 p.m. to
7 p.m. The Historical Society will be hosting Carl and Jim Mager who will provide music
from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Ice cream will be donated by Sinclair Foods. The City Center Week Ice
Cream Social will take place on the Jersey County Courthouse Lawn.
The Library is also participating in the JCBA Open Late event on Tuesday, Aug. 24, and shoppers will get a free book from the Book Sale room if they stop by while shopping downtown between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The Library hope residents are able to attend some or all of these events at the local public library.
