The library will stay open until 5 on Saturday to give everyone a chance to drop in and check out the Kansas Room, the mosaic, or the air conditioning.
Page to Screen has changed! It is now Movie Night. Join us on July 26th at 5:30 to watch an award winning movie about a Mother's fight to find her daughter's killer. It takes place in a neighboring state. That is all Licensing will allow me to say. We will provide the popcorn, bring your own drinks. THIS IS A PROGRAM FOR THOSE 18 AND OVER ONLY. Hope to see you there.
On August 2nd at 6:00, we are starting a new book club. It's tentatively call Waiting for the KHC Book Talk Book Club. We will feature thrillers and mysteries with male lead characters. Our first selection will be Relic by Douglas Preston and Lee Child. It is the first in the Pendergast series. I hope to see you there. This is a mystery with a twist. It should be something different and fun.

Please join us in celebrating this amazing work of art! On June 29th from 5-7 you will have the opportunity to meet the talented folks from the Atchison Art Association who brought the Tree of Knowledge to life on the library steps. Inspired by Allison McFerrin and brought to life by Lorna Garrison, the mosaic was installed by a group of local volunteers. Public libraries are where knowledge and ideas are nurtured and developed. The underlying premise of the Tree of Knowledge is that what we read, think and say impacts our growth and the growth of those around us. We will begin our celebration with words from community members followed by the Ribbon Cutting at 5:30. The library courtyard will be filled with games, music and refreshments to be enjoyed for the remainder of the evening.
Part of the Summer Reading Program, Family Bingo Night will be fun for all ages! Win prizes when you yell BINGO or by answering bonus trivia questions. Free and open to all ages, not limited to Summer Reading Program participants.
