Everyone had fun this summer at the Dorris Van Doren Library. This year 792 people registered for the Summer Reading Program at our branch, and hundreds of people flocked to our programs.
Summer was off to a good start with Amazing Adrian.
There were also many hands-on activities for children to participate in as well. One workshop taught kids how to make their own hacky sacks. They learned about chemical reactions by watching and participating in a geyser demonstration. They also created their own balloon cars out of simple materials.
There were many activities for our teen patrons to participate in as well. Our teen summer programming included a robotics program. Teens also learned how to create a video game using Bloxels, and had fun building straw structures with Strawbees.
One of the most popular teen events was button-making. Teens had a fun time drawing designs and then using the button making machine to create wearable art.
