Celebrate Summer Reading and SummerFest at the San Antonio Public Library!
Children, teens and adults have been celebrating reading and all things GREEN (this year’s theme): animals, plants, recycling and more. Reading during the summer helps children and teens maintain current reading skills and fight the summer slide. School-aged children especially lose reading skills if they don’t keep up with reading over the summer.
Readers will get to learn and have fun with the following performers who will make stops at various library branches throughout July:
- Dinosaur George is all about dinosaurs! Who’s mean, green and invading the Library this summer? Dinosaurs! Dinosaur George will share artifacts and fun info all about these prehistoric creatures.
- Eulenspiegel is all about puppets! Enjoy a puppet presentation of “The Fisherman and His Wife”- a magical story about greed and how happiness is not tied to material possessions.
- Joe McDermott is all about silly songs! This maestro of imagination will have you moving and grooving to the beat.
- TamboRhythms is all about drums! Make some music with Jorge Ochoa and his drums.
Celebrate this summer of reading fun with a party we call SummerFest on Saturday, July 30. The community is invited to Central Library from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. for music, stories, refreshments and plenty of surprises
