The Larsen-Sant Library will be promoting programs offered there throughout the summer.

Tuesdays, June 13, 20, 27, July 18, 25, August 1 (10 a.m. - 12 p.m.): Craftastic Tuesdays!

The library will have the Wilber-Clatonia Accelerated Reader program available for all the summer readers. You may read as little or as much as you would like, just make sure to fill out a book review and return it to us because every review is an entry for prizes throughout the summer.

Readers of all ages will explore all things building, construction, and world-changing this summer as Chadron Public Library presents "Build a Better World" during their summer library program. The library is open from 11 a.m.to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and on Saturdays from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

A special program is scheduled for Wednesday, June 14. Readers of all ages are invited to strap on their tool belts of books and visit the library for six-weeks of crafts, laughs, special guests and artistic performances. Join the activities and enjoy the summer reading a good book or two or three.

Some of the programs are supported in part by a Decentralized Arts Funding Grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the state Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and the Louisiana State Arts Council. She said that upon registration, participants will be given the materials they need to learn which programs will be available at which branches and how to keep track of their participation over the summer in a quest for prizes. We have some fun activities planned.
