Enumclaw Library programs for August

Children & Families

Counteract the “Summer Learning Slide” at the Library

Kids and teens who spend their summer reading and learning, come back in the fall better prepared for school than those who don’t—so KCLS created a new summer learning program called Thinkology: The Study of Fun. Build robots, do hands-on science projects, learn magic, create puppets and, of course, read! For details, visit any KCLS library or kcls.org/kids/summer.
