LARNED — Jordaan Library will feature a special noon Lunch Bites program Friday on aprons.
If you have an apron you would like to share, we’d love to have you bring it.
Jordaan Library will present a genealogy workshop 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Please pre-register by calling the library, 620-285-2876, or come by and sign up.
Kathy Rippel, Central Kansas Library System consultant will lead us in searching a number of popular online genealogical databases.
If you haven’t tried online searching for your family history information yet, you’ll be able to get both tips and hands on experience.
If you happen to have your own laptop computer, you may want to bring it with you, too. That way you can bookmark sites you may want to revisit in the future. This is not a requirement for attending, however.
Don’t miss this chance to “Dig Into Your Roots”. There is no charge for attending.
If you have children or grandchildren looking for fun activities to fill their time this summer, consider all the things going on at the library.
Sign up for our Summer Reading Program “Dig Into Reading”, and have a great time digging into books! Kids of all ages can read for prizes, join a book club, read an old favorite, or find the newest titles.
We’re here to help, and we have something for all ages! Interested in something new?
Children can also sign up for Simple Sewing, Drawing 101, Frontier Adventures, or the American Girls Book Club at Jordaan Library’s new Poise’n’Ivy Summer Camp.
Also new to our summer schedule this year is the Summer Assets Program. Help your children maintain their reading skills all summer long with hands-on, high-interest, adult-directed activities designed to pique curiosity and make reading an enjoyable experience.
We’ll dive into some great books, and supplement them with the use of iPads to create an interactive learning experience. Also new to the summer schedule this year is the Teen Breakfast Club.
Area teens are invited to learn about and share great books with their peers while enjoying a great breakfast.
Finally, we’ll also have Mini-Adventures in the Library, fun things for children and their parents or caregivers to do together. These summer programs are all free of charge, thanks to generous sponsorship by the Larned Kiwanis Club.
Call or come by the library, and keep in mind — registration for all of the summer programs will begin May 20.
