End-of-School-Year Fun! 

This past week we were visited by K-5th graders from Cesar E. Chavez Elementary School. Ms. Sue gave them a tour of our library and read them a story. Afterwards, they had the opportunity to play in the library and read any book of their choice. What a fantastic-sounding visit!  

During the summer our library’s hours are Monday thru Friday 12:00-5:00 P.M. and on Saturdays from 12-4:00 P.M. As a part of our Summer Reading program, we’ll also be having something new and exciting called “Science Saturdays.” Science Saturdays will create opportunities for students to learn about and engage in simple, hands on experiments that one can produce at home using basic materials that will most likely be found in the kitchen! Not only that, but students will also be introduced to the terminology associated with the selected science experiments, hopefully fostering a greater understanding and enthusiasm for the discipline. Ooze, silly putty and color experimentation are just a few of the things that you can look forward to seeing and creating on Saturdays during our Science Saturday series. Science Saturdays will be held from 1-3:00 P.M. at our Cook Library Center during the following dates: July 13th, July 20th, July 27th, August 3rd and August 10th. We hope to see you there! 

Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities administers the programs of the Cook Arts Center and Cook Library Center.
