The Silver City Public Library summer reading program is happening from June 6 through July 21, with a final grand prize party on Friday, July 28. Community members can sign up to track their reading and win prizes during the summer, and they can attend a wide range of different activities for all ages. Activities include storytimes, movie showings, and a hangout space for teens on Fridays. Every Thursday morning at 10:30 there's “Salvage Art Club,” where children ages 6-12 can make beautiful crafts using recycled materials. Summer reading registration continues through the duration of the program. Those interested in signing up can do so at the Silver City Public Library front desk, bringing their library card if they have one. More about summer reading at https://silvercitypubliclibrary.org/events-and-activities/summer-reading-program/

There's a summer reading program for adults, too! To enter prize drawings, stop by the library front desk to sign up. Adults can submit book reviews, complete puzzles, and participate online on the library's Facebook page to enter weekly prize drawings. There will also be end-of-summer grand prize drawings. This year we're also hosting summer events for adults! There will be a crafting day on Tuesday, June 20, 4pm, and a Geek Out Day (robots and more) on Tuesday, July 11, 4pm. No registration necessary to attend the events. More about events for adults at https://silvercitypubliclibrary.org/events-and-activities/events-for-adults/

The Friends of the Silver City Public Library provide funding for special performers, incentives, activity supplies, and everything else needed to make the summer reading program a success each year.

The theme of the 2017 Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World,” and the library will be hosting a food drive during the summer to benefit the Grant County Community Food Pantry. Nonperishable food items will be accepted at the library all summer. During the week of June 12 through June 17 patrons who have lost their library cards can get a free replacement card with the donation of a food item. The summer food drive is the result of collaboration between the library and the Volunteer Center of Grant County. The Volunteer Center has developed programs aimed at offering people access to enough fresh, locally grown food to lead healthy, productive lives. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, generous donors and community partnerships, The Volunteer Center makes their vision reality for food-insecure children and families in Grant County. For more information about the Volunteer Center food distribution programs, see http://www.tvcgrantcounty.org/the-food-pantry/.


The Bayard Public Library summer reading program runs from June 6 through June 30, Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:30am-12:00pm each day. Activities happening at the Bayard Public Library include presentations by the Asombro Institute for Science Education (“Amazing Arthropods!”) and Archeology of the Southwest. The Bayard Public Library is located at 1112 Central Avenue in Bayard. Their summer hours are Mondays 12:00-6:00pm, and Tuesdays-Fridays 9:00am-6:00pm. They can be reached at 575-537-6244 or online at http://facebook.com/bayardpubliclibrary.
