Thanks to all our patrons, fans and sponsors who participated in the 750+ free programs that were held this summer throughout Seattle for the Summer Reading Program! What a great array of choices there were — African Drumming, Bee-Boppin’ Bugs, Duct Tape Mania, Bookmaking, Nature Printmaking, Snake Experience, Make Your Own Comic, and Watercolor Workshop, to name just a few.
We’ll report back in September as to whether the city-wide goal of 125,000 books read this summer was reached, but in the meantime here are photos from some of these events for you to enjoy.
Friendly reminder: all branches of The Seattle Public Library will be CLOSED from Monday, Aug. 31 through Sunday, Sept. 6 due to citywide budget cuts. Monday, Sept. 7 is the Labor Day holiday so regular Library operations will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8. Click here for more information about the closure. We’d love to know how the closure affects you, so please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
