“Tales and Tails” for Summer Reading at Bryan
The Bryan Main Library invites area children and teens to take part in “Tails and Tales” for the summer reading programs of 2021. Summer Reading starts the week of June 7 this year at the Bryan Main Library! Open to teens and children of all ages, summer reading is a passive library program that rewards younger readers for continuing their reading outside of the school year. While supplies last, participants can earn a different prize each week, and everyone who participates in summer reading has the chance to win a raffle prize at the end of July. Registration starts now and is open until June 7, so make sure to stop in to the library and sign up to start earning reading rewards!
Weekly themed programs will also be held throughout the summer. Mondays will have story times at 11:00 am that will be geared towards Preschool aged children, however children of all ages are welcome to attend. Library staff members will read books filled with imaginative tales your kids will love!
The Bryan Main Library is proud to offer a new and exciting program for the youth of our community. Beginning on Tuesday, June 8 the library will hold its first meeting for the, “Plant and Plate Club”! Open to ages 8 through 15 years old, this gardening/cooking club will meet biweekly on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 5:30 pm. Our goal is to allow participants to learn how to grow, shop for, and make their own food in a safe, informative class with people their own age. Parents and guardians are welcome to join, although their attendance is not required. This program has a limited amount of spots available, and registration is required.
Starting on June 15, “Art Works” will be held biweekly on Tuesdays, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.

Workshops will take place every other week, through July 27, in the library. Register to attend.
