Summer is perfect for visiting the library
For many, summer evokes happy childhood memories of visiting the library, finding a great book (or two or three) and devouring it in one sitting. The hot weather and the less-scheduled days still make summer the perfect time to visit the library, no matter what your age.
At Thomas Ford Memorial Library, we have made it even easier for our community to take advantage of all that we have to offer. In response to our 2012 Community Survey, we now will be open on summer Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. and offer special programs.
On June 9 from 2 to 3 p.m., international bubble artist Geoffrey “Merlin” Akins will entertain families by creating dancing bubbles, bubble sculptures and a bubble merry-go-round. On July 21 at 3 p.m., the Fox Valley Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet, featuring local clarinetist John Norton, will present a family concert, including a narrated performance of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf,” Norton’s “Variations on London Bridge” and an opportunity for youth to conduct the quintet. Check the calendar on our website for more Summer Sunday programs.
