By Sarah Nichols - Carnegie Public Library Director



Adults, do you live with diabetes? Food allergies? High blood pressure? Join Pat Brinkman from OSU Extension on Wednesday, June 15 at 3 p.m. for an eye opening program about reading and understanding food labels and nutrition facts on common grocery items. This program will take place in the library meeting room.

Jump into summer reading! Parents and children are invited to the library to sign up for the Summer Reading Program and to register for fun events scheduled throughout the month of June. On Tuesday, June 14 at 2 p.m. children in grades 1-3 are invited to test their building skills with “Lego Build-a-Tower.” How high can you stack these Legos? We will use engineering principles to see who can construct the largest and most stable buildings.

Later that day at 4 p.m., kids in grades 3-6 are invited to test their skills when building a Lego car. Flex your engineering skills and build self-powered cars that can drive and race! Then, on Wednesday, June 15 at 2 p.m. children in grades 1-3 are encouraged to attend the “Magic Treehouse Club.” Join Jack and Annie on a magical journey. We will play games, go on scavenger hunts, learn about new things and create fun crafts!

On Friday, June 17, children ages 5 and up can drop in between 1—4 p.m. to make a fun craft to surprise Dad for Father’s Day. To find out more about “Fayette Field Trips” and all of our summer offerings, pick up a copy of our summer newsletter, or check out our website today. And remember, storytime is back all summer long! Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m., is Preschool Storytime for children 4 – 6 years old and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m., is Books & Blocks for children 1 – 3 years old. Siblings are welcome at either session.

Adults and teens, Summer Reading Program is for you too! Stop in the library and learn more about our weekly prize drawings for our dedicated adult and teen readers. Not sure what to read?

Teens, be sure to check out the new programs for you this summer: On Thursday, June 16 at 2 p.m., get your hoop on, with Hoopin’ Master Josh! Come learn to move to the groove as you spin, twist, rotate and whirl with a hoop! Grades 6 and up! Then, “Chopped! Carnegie Library Edition” takes place on Saturday, June 18 at 11:30 a.m. in the library meeting room. We are issuing one of our greatest, craziest and, if you are lucky, tastiest challenges yet! Roll the dice and see what ingredients you are given in the first ever “Chopped! Carnegie Library Edition.” Then, on Saturday, July 2 at 12 p.m., join us for “Draw! Manga Style.” Learn how to draw this highly stylized Japanese art found in anime cartoons, Japanese comic books and graphic novels. Make your own characters, draw your own story, and create a whole new universe! Instructed by Hunter Houser. Teen events are for tweens and teens in grades 6 and up.

In Jeffersonville: Every Tuesday at 11 a.m., come listen to stories, play instruments, create crafts, and socialize with other little friends at Toddler Time. Each week is a new theme. Tuesday, June 14 is “Celebrate Daddies” in honor of Father’s Day! On Wednesday, June 15 at 11 a.m., all ages are invited to a presentation from the Fayette County Humane Society!
