Liberty library has slate of events for summer reading program

It’s summer reading time and the Liberty Municipal Library begins an out-of-this-world reading experience for local children on Thursday, June 20, at 2 p.m. as the library presents a space-themed craft day. This program is part of the library’s “A Universe of Stories” theme and will be held in the foyer of the Geraldine D. Humphreys Cultural Center.

Craft activities will include making a paper plate UFO, a colorful paper planet and solar system, spin art,  a paper rocket ship and more. Games will include a toss game where kids will knock aliens into a black hole, out-of-this-world dominoes, and an asteroid toss game.

The June 27 special guests will be from Space Center Houston, and they will present “Yes, It is Rocket Science,” in the Humphreys Burson Theatre at 2.

There is no cost for children to participate in the summer program which continues through July 25. The program is for infants through sixth graders and the last day for parents to record books in each child’s reading log is Saturday, July 20.  All participating children will receive a program certificate and a book bag with an assortment of small prizes at the end of the program.
