What's Happening At CCPL
Even though it is technically still spring, I’m thrilled that our Summer Reading Program is finally here! We are partnering with Western Wayne Schools for a fun schedule of events at the Western Wayne Elementary Gym. These will be the first, large, in-person events we’ve held since 2019, so we are especially looking forward to seeing some families again that we’ve been missing. The first event, on June 9th at 2pm, is “Pirate Tales and Sea Shanties” presented by the Main Street Players. Then on Wednesday, June 23rd at 2pm, we will have “Magical Tails” presented by Perry Warren the magician. Both of these events will be held at the Western Wayne Elementary Gym at 801 E. Delaware in Cambridge City. On the alternate weeks, make sure you stop by the library--we will pass out craft kits and a snack to take home along with your new book selections for the reading program all week long. Just come in any time to pick up your goodies. Thank you so much to Dr. Philhower and all of the staff at Western Wayne Elementary for making our summer fun possible. The library will be closed during the summer programs at the elementary gym.
The Summer Reading Program will be offered June 1st through July 31st through READsquared online, or you can pick up a paper log at the library to track your reading. We will hold drawings for cash prizes and gift cards for pre-K, elementary, mid/high school, and adult categories during the first week of August.
Looking forward to next month, you can learn all about cicadas on Wednesday, July 7th at 2 pm when the Cope Center will present “Cicada Tales.” On Wednesday, July 21st at 2 pm, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources will present “Reptiles and Amphibians” with live creatures on site. Our July programs will also be at the Western Wayne Elementary Gym.
For music lovers, we are proud to present the fabulous Richmond Jazz Orchestra on Friday, June 18th from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the east side of the library. Please bring your lawn chairs for this event!
The Senior Center Book Club will meet, Wednesday, June 23rd at 1 pm for a socially distanced book discussion of This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger. The Senior Center Book Club meets at the Golay Center at 1007 E. Main St. in Cambridge City. You can pick your book up at the Senior Center.
If you need help with a resume, a job search, or other projects on the computer, please call the library at 765-478-3335 to schedule a time to work with Jodi Johnson, retired business teacher.
We welcome families with preschoolers to enroll in our popular 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Registering and logging books for this program is available online through our READsquared app that you can download to your smartphone or tablet. This program encourages families to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten. Your child will get a free book from the library to keep after every 100 books read. When your family has read 1,000 books, your child will earn a special prize.
