Summer may be winding down, but before school starts, we plan to send summer out with a bang! Mark your calendars because you don’t want to miss out on all the fun we have planned at the Charleston Public Library. There will be prizes, crafty fashion, a beach movie and even a big summer party!

Summer is the time for T-shirts and shorts. And what better way to celebrate all the books you’ve enjoyed this summer than with your own customized T-shirt. We’ll make T-shirts to go along with our summer reading program theme "Dig Into Reading" at 2 p.m. on Friday August 2. You must bring a T-shirt to participate.

Then, get ready to PARTY! We’re throwing an end of summer reading party that will be quite a bash. Enjoy hopping in the bounce-arounds and playing some outdoor games. Plus there will be yummy treats. Festivities begin at 2 p.m. on August 9. And don’t forget to bring your summer reading logs to turn in for your prizes. Fill out a reading log and win a FREE, brand new scholastic book of your choice. (If you need another log, stop by the Charleston Public Library for a copy or ask how to sign up.)

Plus, take a trip to the beach without even leaving town. We’ll be showing Disney’s Teen Beach Movie on Monday, August 12 at 2 p.m. Join Mack and Brady as they surf their way through summer fun and even back in time.

Then at 2 p.m. on August 14, it’s time for even more prizes. Play BINGO for Books for kids and WIN!

All events are FREE! That’s perfect for parents saving up for that back-to-school shopping.

Charleston Public Library is located on 12 South School Street or you can contact us by calling 965-2605.
