MGPL Offers Summer Reading Program



PRESCHOOL STORYTIME (Mondays at 10:45 AM):

Join Miss Melissa for Preschool storytime.  Kids 3-5 will enjoy stories, songs and crafts.



STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.  At STEAM Punks kids are learning by doing hands on experiments.  This year we plan to take what we deconstructed in Tinker Time and create something new out of our pieces.


Get down to the nuts, bolts springs and things with one of the Mt. Gilead Public Library’s newest programs - Tinker Time. Tinker Time allows participants to safely deconstruct discarded toys and home electronics to learn how they work.

The library will provide patrons with toys, electronics, or appliances and the tools needed to and let them carefully take things apart to see what makes them tick.


ROBOTICS (Mondays at 3:30PM) - Pre-registration required


LEVEL UP (Mondays at 5:45PM):

Level Up your 1st-3rd grader missing out on storytime?  We’ll read a chapter book and then finish with some type of hands on activity once the chapter book is complete.


TINY TOTS (Tuesdays at 10:45 AM)

Join Miss Lori for Tiny tots every Tuesday.  Children will listen to stories, sing songs and make a crafts to take home.  Ages 0-3


LEGO CLUB (Wednesdays at 10:45 AM):

Join staff member Annie for Lego Club at 10:45 on the 3rd floor.  Participants will build on a theme each week or have time to "free build."


 PAGES & POPCORN (Thursdays at 5:45 PM):

Join in MGPL’s Pages & Popcorn Book Club for Young Readers. Whether you are reading to your child or helping them read, we at MGPL encourage young readers to discover great books, share new stories,   explore important topics, and have some bookish fun! Come and explore a variety of titles where you’ll find plenty of   inspiration for a great conversation.
