Word from Elburn: Summer fun in July

The Town and Country Library has fun online and in-person programming planned for kids and adults in July.

Our outdoor reading room is open. Grab a book, bring a snack, and head outdoors to soak up the summer weather.

For kids, outdoor storytime continues in July with Miss Nancy. Join us on July 9 from 10-10:30 a.m. for a fun and interactive storytime that includes songs and flannel board activities that work to enhance the development of early literacy skills. We’ll meet at the gazebo on 3rd Street for our popular Outdoor Read-Aloud series on Thursday, July 22 from 4-4:30 p.m. when Mrs. Hansen reads Our Friend Hedgehog – The Story of Us by Lauren Castillo. Join us for the read-aloud and a fun activity.

Kids can join professional cartoonist Mark Anderson for a virtual cartooning class over Zoom on July 21. Students will play a series of fun games in this Drawing Workshop and invent their own silly animals. At the end, they’ll share their own funny favorites on the big screen in a wacky zoo.

For adults, Virtual Yoga and Virtual Chair-Assisted Yoga are both back at the library. Grab your yoga mat and towel, or a chair, and join seasoned instructor Lynn Meredith for one of these relaxing sessions right from your own living room.

Our Summer of Hitchcock Film Club meets again on July 9. Film studies instructor Joshua Casburn will help us experience Hitchcock’s films in a new way as we watch some of Hitchcock’s greatest films together. This program will be held virtually.

Anyone turning 65 or approaching retirement is welcome to join us for an informative, free virtual seminar on Medicare. Our Virtual Medicare Basics program will be held on July 14 from 6 – 7 p.m., and again on July 29 from 10 – 11 a.m.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in another country with a different culture and language? Here’s your chance to find out. Join us on July 13 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. for a virtual international panel discussion where we’ll hear from international students as they discuss their experiences of leaving home, coming to the United States, and studying at NIU during the pandemic.

In our virtual program Every Color Has a Story: History on the Palette, we’ll discover which came first- the fruit orange, or the color orange. And was Lincoln Green named after Mary Lincoln? This illustrated lecture will share with you the powerful- and colorful- history of color.
