The 2021 summer reading program entitled Tales of Tails is off to a roaring start as local residents have been stampeding into the library to attend activities and check out books

The library was very busy during the month of June. Clay County naturalist Brianne Blom visited to share tidbits about owls and mammals. Participants decorated the library's tree with an example of each that would live in northwest Iowa. Children then painted birdhouses for their feathered friends. Of course, books were also read and games played.

The library also last month played host to several well-attended adult programs. Deb Shanley from D&L Ceramics was in for a succulent pot painting opportunity, and Ryan Nemmers and Nicole Craig conducted the library's first mixology class. They gave visitors a variety of summer drinks to sample. Don't worry if you missed this one because another is scheduled for the fall.

Craig held a workshop about succulents and their care. There were also succulents available to purchase and Del's Garden Center donated a portion back to the library.

July also promises to be plumb full of activities for the kids and the adults. Mondays from 9:30-10 a.m. is the rambunctious infant to four-year-old program. Fun games, songs, crafts and reading will take place. From 10-10:45 a.m., the older kids are welcome to enjoy activities.

Two adult programs are scheduled in July as well. On July 8, patrons can construct bird feeders out of pallet boards, and on July 22, D&L Ceramics will be back to paint garden gnomes. Other activities are being planned for the month and will be announced later. Find updates on the library's Facebook page by searching The Everly Public Library.
