2021 Summer Learning Program

Join us this June and July for two months of tales… and tails! Our animal-themed Summer Learning Program is jam packed with all sorts of safe fun for every age including:

  • Outdoor Events: We’re doing things a bit differently this year with longer events planned to encourage social distancing. Stop by any time during the event to enjoy the activity as a family! We also have weekly teen programs, a beginning fly fishing class, and visits from live animals! All events will be organized with proper safety measures that will help keep our community healthy.

  • Take and Make Kits: In both June and July we’ll be offering multiple take and make kits for everyone from babies to adults. Stop by and pick up kits for every member of the family; we’ll have everything from to engineering your own bird nests to cat toy making kits!

  • Mammal Madness Competition: You’ve heard of March Madness basketball brackets, but starting June 18th, we’re running a seven week “Mammal Madness” competition! Each week, two animals will battle it out, and the winner will continue on to the next round. We are putting our own special twist on it: We will set the scene of the battle and YOU get to submit your pick for who wins the battle! Each week on Friday, Summer will pick the winner based on who provided the best explanation for their pick- she’ll be looking for a mix of fun and facts! Weekly winners get a gift certificate to Pinecone and the final championship winner will get a stuffed animal of the winning creature! Pick up your Mammal Madness Packet at the library so you can fill out your bracket!

  • StoryWalk: We’ll be changing out the story in our StoryWalk every few weeks throughout the summer so families can enjoy an animal-themed story as they stroll through the Library Garden

Registration starts May 15! Stop by the library or call us at 970.884.2222 ext. 1. You can also register online using our form below.
