Story Time: Join Miss Sue for Story Time every Wednesday at 10:15 as we listen to stories, make crafts, sing songs and play games!  

Please note: We do not meet in August, and we do not meet during the school year if North Tama Schools are closed or have a two-hour delay.

 

 

Homework Help:   Each Wednesday from 2:30 to 4:30 we will be offering homework assistance to students in grades 4-12.

 

 

Lego Challenge:   Each Wednesday from 2:30 to 5:00, we are offering a Lego Challenge.  Check in at the circulation desk to receive a tub of Legos and a challenge card with a suggestion of what to build that day.  After you complete the challenge, you will have free time to build whatever you'd like!

 

Summer Reading Programs!:

2022 Summer Reading Program begins June 1!


We are excited for this year’s Summer Reading Program! Our theme this year is Camp Read S’more, and we are starting it off with our first special Summer Reading Program on Wednesday, June 1st. All programs are downstairs in the Kupka Cultural Center at the Traer Library at 10:00. Programs are geared towards children in grades preschool – 6th, but all children and adults are welcome!

 

June 1: Building a Campfire for S’More Fun!” with Jenny Hulme from the ISU Extension and Outreach. Listen to a story, then Jenny will teach us how to build a campfire (kids will build their own edible "campfire"!) and share some campfire safety tips.  You will also make a S'More craft!

June 8: “Close-Up Magic” with Magician Rick Eugene Brammer.  Rick Eugene has been performing amazing close-up magic shows in and around the Midwest, Davenport, and the Quad Cities areas since 1995. Prepare to be amazed and entertained!

June 15: “Camping Basics” with Ellen Stoakes and Kathleen Frana

June 22: ISU Insect Zoo presenting “Bring Those Bugs Inside”


 
Beginning June 1, children can also sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge. Once registered, they will get to choose a free book, and choose a BINGO card. By completing activities on the card to get a BINGO, their names will be entered into the drawing in August for several fun prizes.  The more BINGOs they get over the summer, the more chances they have to win!
