Find Summer Fun at the Library

Summer keeps getting more interesting at the library. Just look at what’s ahead this week: a travel photography class, a live Skype chat with an author, a Civil War antiques road show, a block party and more. (And that doesn’t count the computer skills classes, children’s storytimes and music by a group called Toucan Jam.)

Be sure to save Saturday: Back by popular demand is the Civil War Antique Road Show from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 11, in the Library Center auditorium.

Bring your Civil War-era heirlooms and let Civil War historians including several from Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield and the State Historical Society of Missouri Research Center – Rolla assess their historical significance. (No monetary value will be placed on items.) As time permits, staff will scan or photograph your items for free and give you a copy on a CD or DVD.

That day from 3-5 p.m., drop by the Midtown Block Party at the Midtown Carnegie Branch Library. Celebrate the beginning of summer with the whole family by joining the neighborhood, library staff and community organizations for music, refreshments and games.
