A cool place to spend some time this summer, there are a number of programs offered at the Escalon Library, designed to entertain kids of all ages.

Coming up Wednesday, June 21 at 3 p.m., kids are invited to Paint a Birdhouse in a special craft day with acrylic and watercolor paints, with all supplies provided.

Color Your World on Wednesday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m. will see kids building a community of homes, with seven different designs available.

These programs are part of the Summer Reading Program series, which also has prizes available for those that meet the reading requirements. Several different age levels have the opportunity to win prizes, with a family pack also available.

Upcoming programs also on the schedule include: Slushy Saturday, part of the Science Saturday series, July 1 at noon; summertime art class with Sonya featuring Van Gogh Sunflowers on Saturday, July 8 at noon; Magic Dan on Wednesday, July 12 at 1:30 p.m.; Musical Robot on Saturday, July 22 at 1:30 p.m. and Circus of Smiles, a gravity defying juggling show on Tuesday, July 25, with shows at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Weekly, the fun children’s storytime runs each Thursday, 10:30 a.m. and then older kids can join in for Makerspace on Thursday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Also, the Friends of the Escalon Library book sale is ongoing; the former ‘buck a bag’ sale has been replaced by the ‘buck a bundle’ because of the lack of plastic bags available. A bundle is classified as six books, so stop by and pick out a half dozen books for a buck and get started on some summer reading.
