August in Youth Services
As we enter into the final days of summer, do plan to visit the 2nd floor. It’s a good place for families to spend time together. It’s cool; it’s comfortable; there’s a sense of privacy. So... catch up on all that reading you intended to do the last few months.
Be prepared for the new school year. We’ll have lots of books on display.
Boys and girls ages 10 – 12 are invited to join the August Book Club. Get the details in the Children’s Department and sign up!
Remember to play in the park, swim at the pool, and make good use of your library.

Wellness Wizards, a program offered by Loyola medical students, has again been enthusiastically attended for weekly three hour sessions. Information, games, and activities have focused on themes of nutrition, water, hand hygiene, dental defenders, and emotions. THANK YOU, LOYOLA!
