As of Tuesday, June 23, 2015
The Hood River County Library — and its branches in Parkdale and Cascade Locks — have a variety of classes, crafts and reading programs for the whole family to enjoy this summer.
On June 24, the Bug Chicks will be at the Hood River Library at 5:30 p.m. Entomologists Kristi and Jessica are on a mission to raise the next generation of “bug dorks.” Live bugs!
And on June 25, Crafternoons return to the Hood River Library at 2 p.m. Come out of the heat and enjoy a free craft project provided by G. Williker’s Toy Shoppe. All ages are welcome.
The library has summer reading programs for kids, teens and adults this year. Sign up at the library or one of its branches. Kids will pick a reading goal and earn prizes as they progress towards it. Special performances, crafts and activities count as an extra hour of reading. Teens will be awarded up to three prizes for every five hours of reading completed. Prizes include candy and books; three $50 cash cards provided by Columbia Bank will be raffled off at the end of the summer.
And adults are invited to read anything they want. For every book or audiobook read or listed to, adults will be entered into a prize raffle; last day to enter is Aug. 28. Prizes vary depending on the library site: Dog River and Skylight Theater gift cards in Hood River, Cascade Locks Ale House gift certificate in Cascade Locks, and Solera Brewery gift certificate in Parkdale.
