Have you ever stepped outside at night and just stared up at the sky? Did you just stand there in awe at how amazing the universe is or even wonder what could be out there? I sure have! In fact, it is one of my favorite things to do.
This year, the summer reading program theme at the Warsaw Community Public Library has been all about space. With the program ending on July 31, the library is lucky to end it with the year’s most spectacular meteor shower. The Perseid meteor shower will dazzle the night sky beginning on July 23 and go until Aug. 20, peaking on Aug. 13. If you have a moment, step outside, look up and you can even make a wish upon a shooting star if you would like.
Even though the program is ending soon, you still have time to come in to collect prizes and enjoy fantastic programs. On July 18, the library will host History for Kids. Hear all about the historic mission of Apollo 11 from Neil Armstrong, portrayed by professional actor Terry Lynch. On July 19, help the library celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. On July 25, the library will host a Roz Puppets show and on July 26, the library will host a kids’ escape room. The library also has plenty of other programs such as story time, crafts, makerspace, Minecraft and Greyt Readers.
