Don’t let summer slip by without a visit to the North Tonawanda Public Library, 505 Meadow Drive. Stop in and register for the adult and children’s “Universe of Stories Summer Reading Program,” which starts Monday, June 17, and runs through Friday, Aug. 30. It’s open to residents of North Tonawanda, Wheatfield and Pendleton.
This free program encourages reading without rules, meetings, or fees. Read for a chance to win prizes ranging from booklets of freeholds to gift cards for various restaurants and shops. One lucky person will take home a $200 gift card to Amazon. All one has to do is read books.
Those looking for an excuse to set foot in the library can visit at 2 p.m. Monday, July 8, as Nickel City Reptiles will be present. Also, one can have their picture taken with a Fanforce player in “Star Wars” regalia from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10.
Also at the library, and back by popular demand, the “Big Truck Day” will take place on Wednesday, July 10.
Additionally, keep Mondays open for a free live music series starting at 6:30 p.m. June 15, with Matt’s Music Vocal and Sweet Adelines International to name a few groups.
The library will close out the summer calendar with a hot dog picnic and ice cream social, featuring entertainment by Charlie the Inventor.
