The Mysterious Library Society Campfire

Join the Mysterious Library Society

It's no mystery that Richland Library offers a lot of great programs during the summer, but what is this Mysterious Library Society?!

Mysterious Library Society is a summer program for 6-9 year olds who enjoy secret stories, adventures, getting crafty, and having fun...and who doesn't love all those things?

If that description is still just a little too mysterious, let me recap our first meeting for you. We started by gathering around the campfire to kick off this awesome program. (Notice our very cool fire pictured above). We read funny books and introduced the wonderful novel The Indian in the Cupboard and then played a rambunctious game of Moose, Bird, Badger before going on a nature walk around the Children's Room. We finished up by creating nature-inspired artwork using leaves and pinecones found during our exploration. It was a blast, and we have big plans for the rest of the summer. We will channel your inner pirate, mad scientist, and spy with fun activities like a scavenger hunt and science experiments, and we will explore your creativity every week. Each week you can count on hearing good books, participating in a fun activity, creating a work of art, and making new friends as we all learn and create together.

Do I have your attention now?! Join the secret society Tuesdays at 3:30 June-July in the Children's Room at Main.

Check out these great books from this week's Mysterious Library Society.

Amazon Says: Lights! Camera! Moose! MOOSE? Yes, Moose! When a movie director tries to capture the life of a moose on film, he's in for a big surprise. It turns out the moose has a dream bigger then just being a moose--he wants to be an astronaut and go to the moon. His forest friends step in to help him, and action ensues. Lots of action. Like a lacrosse-playing grandma, a gigantic slingshot into space, and a flying, superhero chipmunk. In this hilarious romp, Richard T. Morris and bestselling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld remind us to dream big and, when we do, to aim for the moon. less...
