“A Universe of Stories” is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Club at the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library. Moreover, “space-explorers” of all ages will discover prizes, fun, friends, learning and more while participating in science, astronomy, sci-fi and magic related events.

A few examples of kids' events are Marshall Mitchell’s presentation that focuses on reading through songs and stories, D.J. Edward’s magical educational program that encourages kids to have a successful future, and Heno Head Jr.’s presentation that introduces families to hands-on interactive science concepts that inspire and entertain.

Teens and adults are not left out of the fun with “Spaced Out” Trivia Night, making cosmic bath bombs, and multiple author visits and book signings going on throughout the summer.

Summer Reading Club registration is going on now, with events and activities in June, July and August. Prizes will be given out to recognize participants who meet their reading goals.

“One thing to remember is that participants don’t have to stick to only one library branch. Participants are welcome at any Library location and this gives patrons a wonderful chance to take part in activities that match both their interests and their schedules,” said Library Program Director, Janea Coker. “Due to community support of the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library and donations of generous sponsors the hundreds of events and activities offered this year are some of the best ever!”
