The Summer Reading Program is about to begin, and adults, teens, and children are encouraged to join us this summer in spreading the word that Libraries Rock! Log your reading time each week and turn it in to win great prizes. Attend the programs scheduled for all ages, like Teen Life Hack Testing, Adult Presentation Pieces of my Life, Children's Lego Contest and More! Those who participate 6 weeks or more get a ticket to the Finale Swim Party at the Atchison YMCA! Go to http://www.atchisonlibrary.org/summer-reading.html to learn more!
Join us for Storytime every Monday and Thursday morning at 10:30! We'll read stories, do some simple arts and crafts, and have as much fun as you can cram into 45 min to an hour. On tap for this week, we'll be reading stories that rhyme on Monday, October 23, and gearing up for Halloween on Thursday, October 26. Come check it out!
If you've been to Storytime lately, you already know how much fun The Book With No Pictures is to read. But if you haven't had the chance to experience it yourself yet, now is the time to hurry down to the library to check out or reserve a copy of the most popular book we've ever read at Storytime! It seems crazy, I know. How could a book without any pictures be that hilarious? How could a book that doesn't even contain a single doodle make everyone in the family laugh so much? Well... it's kind of hard to explain. You just have to read it and experience the craziness yourself. Fortunately, the Atchison Library has you covered! You just might want to avoid reading it at bedtime though. It might make you laugh so much that you won't be able to fall asleep!
Did you love Dragons Love Tacos as much as, uh, well, dragons love tacos? Of course, you did, because it was a worldwide phenomenon and you have excellent taste! But guess what? The dragons are back! And the tacos are back! So come on down to the library today and check out Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri. And if someone beats you to the punch, don't sweat it. We'll be glad to reserve a copy for you and in the meantime, we have tons of other great books you can check out and read until the dragons come back in. Just make sure you lock up all the spicy salsa before you get started!
