Don’t miss out on the summer reading kickoff event on June 27.

Summer is almost here! Parents: What are you going to do to keep your kids, busy, productive, and happy? The Enumclaw Library has several ideas to help you in your task. There are even programs for adults who want to grow while your children are busy with library activities, you can be learning, too! Or, if your kids are gone and you want to get involved and perhaps meet new people.

To start with, the Summer Reading Kickoff is Wednesday, June 27, from 1 to 5 p.m.

All ages welcome. Sign up for the Summer Reading Program, explore something new at the ideaX Playground, and visit the Museum of Curious Things. Drop in for a few minutes, or stay for the afternoon.

ideaX Playground, 1-5 p.m.: Ukuleles, Makey Makey, Squishy Circuits and more!

Museum of Curious Things, 2-4 p.m.: Ages 5 and older. Visit this mobile museum in a vintage airstream trailer filled with oddities from around the world. It’s loaded with cultural artifacts, unusual taxidermy, crypto-zoological samples, anatomical oddities and historical mysteries.
