We have lots of HOT summer fun in our cool Charleston Public Library this July. There will be epic magical battles, you’ll get to meet a real queen, watch zombies misbehave and MORE!

First up, challenge each other to an epic battle at our Wii Skylanders Tournament. Bring your favorite Skylander character to play, or use one of ours. There will be prizes and lots of fun! The tournament will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday July 6th.

Then enjoy a funny story about zombie meets girl in the teen movie "Warm Bodies." Watch this clever twist on a classic tale at 2:00 p.m. on July 8th.

Meet the reigning Miss Arkansas Tech 2013, Kristen Hayes, at 10 a.m. on July 9th. Kristen will be competing for the coveted Miss Arkansas title in a few weeks. Kids will make their own crowns and sashes so they can be our Charleston Public Library’s Mr. and Miss Bookworm.

Pom Pom Poppers is sure to be a hit on July 12th. Marshmallows and pom poms will be flying as kids test their aim after they make their very own poppers at 2:00 p.m.

Stop by your Charleston Public Library and pick up your events calendar for July to see more surprises we have planned! And of course, we’re your Wifi hot spot, in the cool air conditioning this summer.

Just a reminder, the library will be closed for the observance of Independence Day on July 4th.
