Notice all the stars hanging in the library? They are constellations from the summer sky and they go with our summer reading theme of “Dream Big, Read.” Sign up for summer reading, read at least 12 hours this summer and you can ascend to star status.
In the meantime, enjoy cruising the library for constellation spotting. Some are in easy-to-find locations, but others are a bit more tricky to pick out (just like in the actual night sky).
Grab a scavenger hunt form from any desk (or download a printable one here) and travel the library discovering constellations, the phases of the moon and even a solar system made from glass. Ask a librarian if you need a little assistance.
One lucky star-gazer will be rewarded. The back of the form is your entry form into a random drawing for a prize bag full of cool library stuff (pictured). Forms must be turned in by the end of July. Turn them in at any desk.
