Summer is quickly approaching here in Indianapolis, and we want to point out all the fun opportunities that our local libraries have in store for this summer. We know that writing about every library’s unique offerings in one post would be overwhelming and lead to information overload. Therefore, we’re highlighting a different local library every day this week to give our Cheapsters a well-rounded preview of what’s happening this summer.
Today, we’re discussing the Brownsburg Public Library. Located at 450 South Jefferson Street in Brownsburg, this library seeks to provide a friendly and open destination for the community that encourages imagination, discovery, and personal growth. While adults can certainly find seminars and other helpful information at this library, we’re particularly struck by the many different programs open to kids of all ages. Here’s a sampling of some of the recurring events:
- Preschool Express: Geared toward kids aged 3.5 to 6 years old, your child can enjoy activities like stories, songs, and crafts. Registration is optional for this program, but spaces fill up quickly.
- Oh, the Books You Will Read: This program is designed for kids between ages 6 and 10, and helps keep reading skills sharp during the summer off of school. Each child can sign up to read with a teenager once per week.
- Spark a Reaction: This program is designed for older kids (anyone from age 11 to 19 is welcome), and covers a variety of interesting topics. Examples include tye-dyeing shirts, a sampling of the monthly Teen Book Club, dance and board games, and much more.
These events continue throughout the summer, so you’ll have plenty of time to participate even if you have to miss some of them with a family vacation. While Brownsburg opens its doors to all Cheapsters, we believe its bread and butter is its programs for kids.
