SYRACUSE — Tails and Tales and Fantasy Tales are activity themes for children and teens this summer at the Syracuse Public Library. The children’s summer reading logs, itinerary of events and information can be printed from the website or picked up after June 1.
Read-to-me children keep track of summer reading with stickers and independent readers choose activities. The rewards are Tails and Tales book-pack bags and a choice of a new book. Teen summer reading materials are given out in person. A variety of crafts to make and prizes are given regularly for pages read.
Before the summer adventures start, a week of programs finishes the month of May. Story times meet at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26 and Friday, May 28.
A new group, The Pollinator Club, is talking about information resources at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 26. Future meetings are about pollinators of favorite foods, and invasive trees in the community.
Mahjong is back. The library has three sets and is open for beginners and others each Monday morning at 10 a.m. Those who own a copy of the 2021 rules card, please bring your copy.
Excursion to South Africa
There is plenty of room to be part of the adult book club this summer. The next book is “Born A Crime” which helped make Trevor Noah known and loved by many. Noah writes what he remembers of being a mixed race person growing up during apartheid. Copies of the book and audio book are available for pickup. A zoom discussion is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 15. An in-person discussion meets at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 17. Meet the group through the month when you join with email.
