Moffat County Libraries programs to offer state parks fun, stellar summer reading
Moffat County Libraries will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, though the outlet will be open at noon the following day, leading to a multitude of summer programs that are out of this world.
Get down to earth at the library with a special display featuring books about enjoying Colorado’s great outdoors.
As part of an initiative to combine reading and getting out and about in the summertime, library staff also have Colorado state park passes and backpacks available for young patrons.
A universe of stories
The library’s summer reading program theme is “A Universe of Stories” and will run from June 1 to Aug. 23 for all ages. Additional space-themed activities will take place across the summer, as well.
Among the many children’s offerings are monthly drawings for the adult program.
Every Monday starting June 3, kids can download the activities posted from the library Facebook page to do at home, including math, science, crafts, art, games, stories and more.
